Several therapies from a range of drug classes are available to address the symptoms of narcolepsy, which include excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy. Despite the availability of many pharmacological treatments, a large proportion of patients have inadequate control of their narcolepsy symptoms. Given that narcolepsy treatment is highly individualized and complex, understanding the use of current therapies in the nuanced narcolepsy treatment algorithm ahead of anticipated product launches is essential. Our Treatment Algorithms research leverages national patient-level claims data to explore the use of key therapies in narcolepsy, such as modafinil, armodafinil, Harmony Biosciences’ Wakix, and Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ Xyrem, in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients.
