Providing free prescriptions for narcolepsy and cataplexy sufferers
Petition Background (Preamble):
Cataplexy is, in brief, a condition in which heightened emotions cause muscles to weaken, making the sufferer collapse, which can potentially and almost always be life-threatening.
Narcolepsy, in brief, is a condition in which the sufferer sleeps excessively and experiences hallucinations and sleep paralysis on a daily basis.
This can be distressing and painful for everyone involved and so medication to control the conditions is essential in most cases. This medication can drastically change a life and allow sufferers like me to work and live almost as normal.
The conditions are potentially life-threatening and can cause serious injury and so the seriousness of this needs to be addressed.
