Accident prevention and safety

node leader

Having narcolepsy may expose you to hazards that do not apply to other people. With that in mind, protect yourself by taking the following simple measures:

  • Be aware of situations where you are likely to be at risk of falling asleep or suffer from a cataplexy attack and inform others around you.

  • Do not operate machinery alone in case of a sudden attack of sleepiness.

  • If you drive, do not do so if you feel tired, and plan to take naps before you feel tired.

  • If you suffer from cataplexy, it is unlikely that you will suffer an injury as a result of an attack, but make other people aware of the condition so they can identify any hazards.
