Idiopathic hypersomnia – Excessively sleepy with difficulty staying awake

This Clinical Trial is looking for Idiopathic Hypersomnia in 18-75 year old adults.

Patients must have

  1. Daytime sleepiness beginning early in life.
  2. Previous test results confirming diagnosis of Idiopathic Hypersomnia.
  3. Regular bed time and wake time during the week.
  4. Bed time by 1 am.
  5. At least 7 hours of actual sleep per night.

Patients must not have

  1. Other sleep disorders that can cause daytime sleepiness, such as narcolepsy.

  4. Significant medical, cardiac, neurological or psychiatric disorders.
  5. Untreated thyroid disorders.
  6. Use of any anti-psychotic medicines.

If patients are using stimulant medicines and are still very sleepy during the day, they may continue the stimulant medicines. If the stimulant medicines are controlling the sleepiness, they will have to stop the stimulant medicines for the study. No alcohol is allowed during the study.

The study will last about 40 weeks. There will be thirteen office visits and one overnight in the sleep disorders center. Patients may be paid about$2000 for their time and inconvenience for completing the study.

The study will test a new medicine to see if it reduces sleepiness in patients with Idiopathic Hypersomnia.
