- To evaluate the efficacy of pitolisant in reducing residual Excessive Daytime Sleepiness (EDS) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Changes in EDS measured by the Paediatric Daytime Sleepiness Scale (PDSS).
- To evaluate the efficacy of pitolisant in reducing the number of cataplectic episodes (for patients with cataplexy) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Changes in the average number of cataplexy episodes per weeks (recorded in sleep diary).
- To determine safety in children and adolescents - Safety assessment will be done on monitoring of adverse events, physical examination, vital signs, ECG (QTc) and Blood Laboratory tests modifications and the mood appraisal [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Safety assessment will be done on monitoring of adverse events (Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events), physical examination, vital signs (blood pressure and heart rate), ECG (QTc) and Blood Laboratory tests modifications (Haematology and Biochemistry) and the mood appraisal (Childhood Depression Inventory [CDI] and Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale [C-SSRS]) throughout the study .
