Narcolepsy is characterized by several symptoms that includes cataplexy, excessive daytime sleepiness, hallucinations, and sleep paralysis. In addition, a narcolepsy patient also experiences automatic behaviors such as eating, walking, or driving, in a dazed manner. Symptoms differ from patient to patient and are usually diagnosed between the ages of 7 and 25.
Although narcolepsy is a rare and under-diagnosed chronic condition, there are many people affected by the disease. It was estimated that more than 1 in 2,000 people in the U.S. were affected by narcolepsy in 2012. The severity of the disease and rise in the number of people being affected by narcolepsy are some of the driving factors for the market growth. Furthermore, the availability of reimbursement for FDA-approved prescription medicines will help increase the demand for these drugs. However, lack of awareness regarding the diagnosis and treatment availability will hinder the market growth. An increase in the number of programs by various organizations to increase awareness will help open new avenues for the market growth.
