Participants Wanted for Narcolepsy Depression Relationship Study

Wake Up Narcolepsy funded patient study on the relationship between narcolepsy and depression

This study will investigate how people with narcolepsy are living with their condition. The research is being conducted by Jason C. Ong, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Neurology, Center for Circadian and Sleep Medicine
at the Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, IL. Dr. Ong and his team will be gathering data on the impact of narcolepsy on quality of life and psychological functioning. They are also interested in the patient experience with current treatments for narcolepsy. They plan to collect data using online surveys, and we will ask for patients to share their experience as part of an online focus group. This focus group will be led by a facilitator who will ask a series of questions about living with narcolepsy.

They are currently looking for men and women ages 18 and older who have been diagnosed with narcolepsy and have symptoms of depression.

If you agree to take part in this research study, you will be paid $50 after the completion of the focus group. You do not need to travel to any location to take part in this study.
