Statement of Need

Central disorders of hypersomnia such as narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia (IH) can be debilitating as both disorders are characterized to excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) which conveys a high decree of disability and burden. While there are safe, effective therapies that promote sustained reduction of symptoms in narcolepsy, there is often a failure to implement them in a timely manner. Moreover, there are currently no FDA-approved treatments for IH, making effective management a challenge. As patients with narcolepsy or IH often experience persistent EDS despite traditional treatment, there is a need for education on identifying and implementing effective novel therapies.

This live question and answer session is your opportunity to ask questions based on the CME Outfitters virtual symposium where faculty focused on the spectrum of EDS across the subtypes of narcolepsy, strategies to apply data from recent clinical trials to treatment decision-making, and the impact of emerging agents for the management of EDS in patients with IH.
