Re: Sleep Paralysis Advice

I was diagnosed with narcolepsy and my doctor told me that if I wanted something to suppress the sleep paralysis he would prescribe me an anti-depressant such as Prozac. I don't want to take anything but it is an option. I have to sleep with a little light on and the fan and this helps so much. I also don't go up to bed until I'm very tired and if my boyfriend isn't there I talk to him on the phone while I'm falling asleep. I only get it about once every other month now, as opposed to around twice a week with bad hallucinations. If I even try to fall sleep in the total dark and quiet now I start to get it almost immediately.
