  2. Previous test results confirming diagnosis of Idiopathic Hypersomnia.
  3. Regular bed time and wake time during the week.

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.

The study will last about 14 weeks. There will be five office visits and a few phone calls. Patients may be paid about $950 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.
