I am a 26 year old Narcoleptic (Frequent uncontrollable and unreasonable sleep attacks). After about a dozen experiences with E, I find that my symptoms of narcolepsy are all but completely eliminated for days after.

It has a much better result at controlling my sleep attacks than my prescribed medication (dextro-amphetamine) which merely 'speeds' me up for four to six hours. Do you have any knowledge of similar effects? Not only do I have a smashing evening, I tend to have my most productive days at work following!

I have spoken to my Narcolepsy Doctor about it and she said with a sly grin, 'MDMA has amazing potential in medicine... But, as your Doctor I cannot encourage... yadda yadda yadda...'
