Adderall does not have an FDA indications for the treatment of narcolepsy but is sometimes used off label for the syndication. More typically other stimulants are used in the treatment of narcolepsy to prevent the drowsiness and sudden sleep episodes associated with this condition.

Adderall dosing in adults for ADHD is usually started at 20 mg daily and titrated up in increments of 10 mg weekly Topamax and dose of 60 mg a day. In children the maximum Adderall dosage for ADHD is typically 30 mg daily in children under age 12. The same dosing guidelines are probably appropriate for off label use for narcolepsy although this should probably be left to neurology specialists to consider.

FDA drugs approved for the use of treatment of narcolepsy. These include Provigil, Nuvigil and Xyrem. Other older medications without specific FDA approval for the treatment of narcolepsy include methylphenidate, dextroamphetamine and methamphetamine. Most neurologists now use the newer FDA approved drugs because of lower abuse potential and higher efficacy.
