Narcolepsy care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

Mayo Clinic doctors trained in sleep medicine, as well as doctors trained in brain and nervous system conditions (neurology), mental health conditions (psychiatry), lung and breathing conditions (pulmonary medicine), children's health (pediatrics), and other areas, work together to determine the most appropriate treatment to help you manage your condition.

Mayo Clinic researchers

Mayo Clinic doctors and clinicians have performed considerable research and clinical trials in the areas of narcolepsy and other sleep disorders, including causes, diagnosis and treatment options.

All tests and labs are run at Mayo Clinic, which means tests taken in the morning can be reviewed the same afternoon. This collaborative approach means that getting a diagnosis and care plan that might take weeks elsewhere takes only a few days at Mayo Clinic.
