  1. Wow, this is all fantastic info, thank you all very kindly.

    CHfather, Maxalt seems to work and it works quickly because it's the kinda thing where it dissolves on your tongue, which I assume gets it into your system faster. Last night I got another attack and was forced to take Maxalt in the solid pill form and it definitely took longer to work. Though thankfully it did work, so I guess I can't complain. I'm wondering if crushing up the pill before hand would make it work faster but I'm not quite sure how to go about crushing a pill.

  2. I'm definitely gonna bring up oxygen but I seem to recall from my last visit to the doctor that my insurance won't cover it. I think the doctor will write a prescription but I'm guessing the cost out of pocket would be quite astronomical. Worth looking into though, so thank you!

  3. After 2 and a half years of being cluster free, I thought they were gone for good this time. Alas I was incorrect, because this morning I got a cluster and I'm guessing that was the start of a new series because I've never just gotten ONE cluster (thought hope springs eternal).

    I've got a decent supply of Maxalt and a couple other meds that I've been stockpiling since my last bout, but I'm going to see the doctor in early July and I wanted to get my ducks in a row before doing so. Can anyone tell me what kinda drugs I should be asking for, just in case my doctor doesn't know about them already? I'm just glad to have a doctor who actually agrees that clusters are real (some have not) so I don't expect him to be up on the latest RX for clusters.

    Any suggestions anyone may have would be greatly appreciated. Maxalt still works but I'm wondering if maybe there's something that might work even better.

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts anyone may have.
