NARCOLEPSY

A condition whereby a person has a tendency to fall asleep a few times per day for several minutes or hours.  The attacks may occur when in quiet surroundings or may be induced by laughter and the person may be woken easily.  It is thought that it may be immune-related disease and lasts for life.

 

NARCOTIC

A drug that leads to a stupor and complete loss of awareness.  In particular opiates derived from morphine or produced synthetically produce various conditions:  deep sleep, euphoria, mood changes and mental confusion.  In addition, respiration and the cough reflex are depressed and muscle spasms may be produced.  Because of the dependence resulting from the use of morphine-like compounds, they have largely been replaced for sleeping drugs.
