A new literature review describes a consistent characterization of fragmented nighttime sleep in patients with narcolepsy. Frequent, brief nightly awakenings are reported with difficulties returning to sleep and associated reports of poor sleep quality. Expert consensus was that the treatment of disrupted nighttime sleep may be warranted in people with narcolepsy. The review appears in the September issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine.
