    Does nasal spray work for you?

    Hello im a new member here. I have been suffering from CH for over 10 years. Usually get CH in spring and fall that lasts for about a month. I usually stay away from any prescription meds due to their cost and because they just make next headache worse. Recently I had a bad flu that triggered nightly clusters. Since I had runny nose I started using nasal spray to clear out congestion. So one night I got up with a really bad CH and went to clear my nose and used over the counter nasal spray. Approximately 15 minutes later headache was gone and I quickly fell asleep. I never had any medicine act so fast against CH. I have been using nasal spray to fight CH for past 2 weeks and it worked everytime. Sparay that I use contains regular dose of Oxymetazoline. So Im just curious if this method worked for someone or maybe it will help you too if you havent tried it yet.

    Did we forget to tell you big pharma sales folks browse the forum looking for posts like yours? A contract hit has probably been issued for you in the States (joking of course).

    God imagine if you have to pay for sumatriptan injections how much money you could save. I'll probably be murdered by big pharm lol

    Because this subject appears in another post from today, I took the liberty of pasting the post above onto that thread, so that everything is in the same place. The longer thread is here: https://clusterbusters.org/forums/topic/5829-does-nasal-spray-work-for-you/

    I have been researching oxymetazoline for some time now and have been using as a substitute for sumatriptan for nearly 3 years. I am 100% certain that this aborts my cluster headaches. Oxymetazoline as an α-adrenoceptor agonist, however it works as a full and potent agonist of serotonin receptor types 5-HT1A, 5-HT1B AND 5-HT1D, and is a partial agonist of 5-HT1C. Sumatriptan works as an agonist of serotonin receptor types 5-HT1B and 5-HT1D. It is believed that sumatriptan aborts cluster headaches because of cerebral vasoconstriction caused by its action as an agonist on serotonin receptor type 5-HT1D So I firmly believe oxymetazoline aborts cluster headaches. So far you are my first confirmation. Spread the word

    Busting also helps with depression, anxiety & alcoholism. I hope you get that oxygen going & perfect your technique so you can get through now, through the detox periods, bust & get to pain free status.

    What if there WAS a CURE?

    Four hours of typing to say nothing. The parasite theory has been floated before and not well received for obvious reasoms not the least of which it is provable by “modern science”. Being withholding and secretive is the stuff of attention seeking and manipulators. Folks with quality information are generous and forethcoming. Batch set the standard for this and many others have done so to a lesser degree . I am happy you have resolved you CH issue but it seems you have other things to work on.

    Sounds like one of those "I'll only tell ya if you beg, plead and recognize me." type posts. I've seen many through the years. I know that if one of the many people I know with CH were to somehow stumble on to a real cure for this crap we have, they would be shouting it from the treetops. No one that lives with this shit would withhold information that could bring relief to others that suffer. The desire for personal gain causing a closed mind??? Here???? Seriously????? The fact the you even suggest such a thing shows how off target your sales pitch is. This place is a direct result of Bob's quest to help others. Because of that, many others here have spent far more than they'd care to admit trying to educate people on options, advocate for our collective and lending a helping hand when needed. To suggest a profit motive here of all places is beyond asinine....at best. I'd better stop here before I earn a posting vacation for my non-PC, obscenity laced tirade kicks in to high gear.

    I know that some of the prescriptions are manufactured in a nasal spray form and work much better and faster then in pill form and injections working the fastest but I have never heard of a over the counter drug in any form abort a cluster. What is the brand yo are using? Maybe someone else will have more information for you.
