One form of GHB that is legal and prescribed is called Xyrem. It is a sleep aid sedative and treats patients with narcolepsy (random/frequent episodes of sleep) or catalepsy (weakening or paralysis of muscle during intense emotion) and/or EDS (excessive daytime sleepiness). This is because GHB changes one's levels of alertness and alters breathing.
