crazycatnapper Posted December 29, 2007 Share Posted December 29, 2007 A link to this article [link=http://www.wired.com/science/discoveries/news/2007/12/sleep_deprivation" target="_blank]http://www.wired.com/science/discoveries/n...eep_deprivation[/link] was posted on a narcolepsy support site I am a member of. Scientists have been working on a way to replace Orexin, the chemical missing from the brains of people with narcolepsy and it looks like they are onto something. This could be amazing, even if it's ten plus years away. Xyrem didn't work for me and I can't take stimulants, so to hear a new drug is even in existance excites me. Woo hoo. I seriously want to be a lab rat for this. I'll take my chances with freaky side effects because I doubt they could be worse than what I am living with now. For those of you who enjoy such things, read the comments under the article. Some people are so fucking worried about drug abuse that they simply don't care if something would really help a lot of people. Of course, they probably don't suffer from a disabling disease either. Closed minded ignorance really pisses me off. *jumps off soapbox Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
