Abstract

History A 68-year-old woman had suffered from narcolepsy since she was 15 years old [1]. She had her first typical cataplectic episodes when she was 25 years old, while laughing, when surprised by meeting a known person in the street, or when speaking about emotionally challenging events of her past history. At age 68 years she abruptly stopped taking her clomipramine and had numerous cataplectic attacks, leading, over a two-month period, to full disabling status cataplecticus requiring inpatient care.
