Can anything help people with narcolepsy to wake up?

I was recently diagnosed with narcolepsy and have been struggling with it for years. I am taking Concerta and it helps to keep me more awake during the day, however it does nothing to help me wake up. I've tried taking it before bed and it really helps a lot, but my doctor advised me not to and since I only get enough for the month I can't take it before bed. Nothing helps me wake up. I take my Concerta at 6 and go back to bed with hopes of at least waking up by 730, however it barely helps and most times I could continue sleeping for the rest of the day. I feel like at this point, this is completely hopeless. I want SO bad to wake up on time and get to school before 4th period but it's just not happening. Is there ANYTHING I can do??
