  1. Thank you. As I mentioned rebound congestion is an issue, and I cannot rule out the possibility of rebound headaches. I have been prescribed a weak steroid nasal spray to combat rebound congestion. My theory has long been that its success was due to opening up airways, increasing the body efficiency to intake oxygen, maybe it is just that simple. Its action on serotonin receptors is a new discovery to me and though it was an interesting link. Obviously, prevention is key to minimize the need for oxymetazoline. My main focus now is to find a reliable preventative
  2. Been having a look into some of the prevention methods being used on here. The use of Vit D, magnesium and keto diets all seem to have reasonably high success. I mentioned in an earlier post that after I use oxymetazoline I can always pull a ridiculous amount of mucus from my sinus cavity and nasal passages and this eases the pain of my attack. After some reading online I have discovered that Vit D deficiency is linked with chronic sinusitis, magnesium is used to reduce mucus in CF patients, and the body requires carbohydrates to produce mucus so a keto diet will inevitably reduce mu
  3. In that case F#$K YOU big pharma, No I dont want your shitty sumatriptan for £20 a pop.
  4. 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
  5. Hi all I searched through previous content and found this, it was originally posted in dec 2018. I just added a comment to it to get it back on the feed. Please dont be sceptical people. If you really think about it no one could possibly have anything to gain by informing you that a £2 bottle of over the counter decongestant will abort 20+ of their headaches
  6. 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 s
  7. BEFORE YOU READ I AM NOT A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL PLEASE SPEAK WITH YOUR GP BEFORE TRYING ANY TREATMENT OR MEDICATION!!! Hi everyone I have had cluster headaches for more than a decade. And for all of this time I have been searching for new drugs to abort my cluster headaches. The drug has to meet certain criteria, it needs to be fast acting, discrete, cheap, easily available and constrict blood vessels ideally by acting as an agonist to the same serotonin receptor types as sumatriptan (5-HT1B and 5-HT1D). So, after years of searching I have come up with Oxymetazoline, an over t
