Having trouble managing your narcolepsy symptoms? Learn more about the RESTORE open-label study evaluating a new potential treatment.


RESTORE is an open-label clinical study evaluating the long-term safety and tolerability of FT218, an investigational extended-release formulation of sodium oxybate currently being developed for the once-nightly treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and cataplexy in people with narcolepsy. An open-label clinical study means that everyone who takes part receives the medication. RESTORE, which builds on a previous clinical trial, known as REST-ON, is primarily studying:

  • The long-term safety, tolerability, and efficacy of FT218
  • The dosing and tolerability in switching from twice-nightly sodium oxybate to FT218

An additional objective is to evaluate the patient preference between once-nightly and twice-nightly dosing regimens of sodium oxybate. RESTORE is open to people with narcolepsy currently on twice-nightly sodium oxybate or people who completed the REST-ON trial of FT218.

Participation details

RESTORE is an important opportunity to help doctors better understand how this investigational medication works for people with narcolepsy. Participation will include:

  • Taking FT218 once nightly for up to 2 years at no cost
  • Visiting a clinic monthly to receive FT218; every third month will include checkups and completion of questionnaires

*RESTORE study checkups will measure narcolepsy symptoms such as EDS and cataplexy, as well as how you’re doing overall. No overnight sleep studies will be required for RESTORE.

Am I eligible?

To participate in RESTORE, candidates must:

  • Be diagnosed with narcolepsy (with or without cataplexy)
  • Be 16 years of age or older
