  2. Previous test results confirming diagnosis of Idiopathic Hypersomnia.

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.
