What did the MRI show?  What type of doctor is treating you for the headaches?  Have you discussed with your doctor about narcolepsy and options available to you for treatment?  There are other medications available besides the one you are taking?  Have you had a sleep study done in the past to confirm your diagnosis?

Seems to me you need to see your GP and have a sincere talk to him/her about this. Ask about medications, other tests and treatments.
