Wakix Will Be a New Rx Med for Narcolepsy

You may see Wakix (WAY-kiks, pitolisant), a new oral tablet for excessive daytime sleepiness due to narcolepsy, on home med lists.

An advantage of Wakix is that it's NOT a controlled substance.

Other meds that promote wakefulness...armodafinil (Nuvigil), modafinil (Provigil), and Sunosi (solriamfetol)...are C-IV.
