Rule out organic disorders like Electrolyte disturbances Hypothyroidism Alzheimer's disease Uncontrolled DM and Hypertension. Auto- brewery syndrome If above disorders are ruled out It is a case of NARCOLEPSY without catapexy . Treatment is CNS stimulants like Amphetamine Dextroamphetamine Modafinil A newer drug - Solriamfetol is promising
