Solriamfetol was initially developed as an antidepressant, but after patients saw an increase in wakefulness they thought, wait a second, would this help with sleep disorders such as narcolepsy? And they were right.
It makes sense, really — sleep has a big influence on how hungry we feel and the type of food we choose to eat. So, when our sleep is erratic it can mess with our metabolism and urges to binge.
Spoiler alert — did you know that RLS is not a sleep disorder? It's actually a neurological disorder. Mind blowing, right?
