Dr. Martin Scharf in Cincinnati has used GHB to treat narcolepsy for more than a decade. He recently published an article (Journal of Rheumatology, 1998: 25:10) indicating good success at treating fibromyalgia. It appears that, in a variety of disorders, sleep disturbances are more causative rather than just symptoms. GHB in proper doses provides normal (albeit short-term) slow-wave sleep (unlike most other sleep agents which destroy normal sleep architecture). And normal slow-wave sleep has been linked to increased production of human growth hormone. This is a very promising area (interface between endocrinology and sleep) that we believe will have significant benefits for insomniacs, as well as those who suffer from mood disorders.
