My insurance doesn't cover oxygen - any tips? in General Board Posted Thursday at 08:32 PM On 10/14/2020 at 11:48 AM, Double A said: What caffeine drink works best for you? I'm able to abort most attacks at 15L at about 10mins. Are you able to abort them faster with 25L? I used to able to abort most attacks in about 5min with Sumatriptan injection, but unfortunately due to another health condition/medicine I can no longer use that. The nice thing about 5-Hour Energy is that it packs a lot of caffeine (twice as much as a RedBull) but can be chugged down quickly. Plain strong coffee is enough for some people (keep it ready in the fridge). 10 minutes is a reasonably quick abort. Caffeine and/or the special mask (ClusterO2 Kit) will probably speed that up. You might not get a whole lot faster abort with 25lpm, but you had said that 15lpm didn't really keep pace with your breathing, so it seems reasonable to think that if you can breathe at your most effective pace, you could cut off some additional time. Is it that you now can't use any triptan, or just that you can't take as much as the Imitrex injector (6mg)? It's always good for anyone to stay away from the triptans as much as possible, but you might want to be aware that 2mg of sumatriptan is enough to stop attacks for most people, and there are ways of using only that much. For example ... https://clusterbusters.org/forums/topic/2446-extending-imitrex/ There are a few additional ways of dealing with an attack in this post, under "Other 'Treatments'...." https://clusterbusters.org/forums/topic/6213-basic-non-busting-information/ Also some info there about the D3 regimen, which as others have said is very much worth pursuing.
