  1. Opening : The Law Isn't Ready For Psychedelic Medicine from the ready-or-not-here-it-comes dept. Matt Lamkin reports via Scientific American: In March, the Food and Drug Administration approved esketamine, a drug that produces psychedelic effects, to treat depression -- the first psychedelic ever to clear that bar. Meanwhile the FDA has granted "breakthrough therapy" status -- a designation that enables fast-tracked research -- to study MDMA (also called "ecstasy") as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and psilocybin as a treatment for major depression. While these and other psychedelic drugs show promise as treatments for specific illnesses, FDA approval means doctors could also prescribe them for other, "off-label" purposes -- including enhancing the quality of life of people who do not suffer from any disorder. Hence if MDMA gains approval as a treatment for PTSD, psychiatrists could prescribe the drug for very different purposes. Yet while the FDA generally does not regulate physicians' prescribing practices, a federal law called the Controlled Substances Act bars them from writing prescriptions without a "legitimate medical purpose." Although this prohibition aims to prevent doctors from acting as drug traffickers, the law does not explain which purposes qualify as "legitimate," nor how to distinguish valid prescriptions from those that merely enable patients' illicit drug abuse. Would prescribing a psychedelic drug simply to promote empathy or increase "life satisfaction" fall within the scope of legitimate medicine -- or would these practices render the physician a drug dealer? To many the answer may seem obvious: to qualify as a "medical" use, a drug must be prescribed to treat an illness. But in fact, medical practice has always included interventions aimed at promoting the well-being of healthy individuals. "At a time when 'lifestyle drugs' are marketed as consumer products, it is increasingly difficult to draw a bright line that distinguishes legitimate medical practices from their illicit cousins," adds Lamkin. "If prescribing mind-altering drugs to help healthy people achieve desirable mental states falls within the bounds of legitimate medicine, what is left of the concept of recreational use?".
  2. Yes but CH runs the gamut. You’re not alone but rare. There are some that cycle 2 times a year , every other, every 3 rd year... we all have a different number of attacks....
  3. It’s the same drug but oral sumatriptan rarely works for CH. it take too long to absorb, plus it’s not as bioavailable as the injection. 99% of CH patients get no relief from oral but get relief in 5-10min with the injection. I do agree with John it’s unlikely that one dose here or there of sumatriptan would cause worsening CH. it’s more of a problem with frequent use...
  4. I have also been told by my pervious doc that it can take months to work. So I’m surprised they only studied it less than a month out. That placebo group is strange!
  5. From what brief exchange I had w BHD, it has a wide range of “help” for different patients. He’s had patients go from chronic to episodic, others that just get a reduction, some remission and yet others no relief. He thinks it’s worth trying for some one that is uncontrolled like me. However we both agreed to wait until I was fully detoxed from the invega and can say for sure if psychedelics will work for me. It’s my last option...
  6. You’re best off making a new post or searching for CBD in this website to see what people’s experience has been. It is a drug. Not so much a recreational drug like thc, but a drug none the less...

    half time

    I don’t think CBD is an alternative to thc. They have totally different effects on the body. CBD is not psychoactive, thc is... they have different uses... they both have a great place in health and medicine. CBD has become a fad, they put it in everything from human edibles, soaps, even dog foods like you said. It’s said to have a calming effect on people at lower doses. Helps raise the seizure threshold... modulate pain...its very safe.
  8. Wow, crawlers are an interesting thing. It’s like the matrix. Lol. Glad we got one not bot... welcome

    So I came across some one that makes DMT cartridges to vape... that uses DMSO as a carrier fluid, he also claims it’s great for you (DMSO) and sent me this link https://hebrewofyhwh.wordpress.com/chapter-9-health-and-healing-issues-for-the-man-of-yhwh/dmso-the-persecuted-drug-full-copy-of-the-book/ i have only read a fraction of it and will pick it up again when thisbkip 9 breaks. When you look it up on the web, webMD and RXlist (not my favorite sites) say it has been used to treat headaches. Nothing comes up when I search the site for DMSO... any thoughts? @BostonHeadacheDoc Ever heard of or used DMSO to treat any kind of headache. As a carrier for DMT it’s probably ok, however there is a small risk of a respiratory reaction. I would only use it to abort a kip 10 while in a busting schedule after oxygen has failed a few attempts (some times if I try O2 a second or third time I abort), when I couldn’t use a trex...
  10. I’m sorry I just couldn’t leave it alone. As with any cluster head I wish you the very best of luck and hope you’re pain free for the rest of your life. This is no picnic for any one. Mahalo
  11. There you go using the “C” word. Again, unfortunately you don’t learn. You didn’t cure anything, you eliminated a trigger for yourself. Your brain is just as fed up as ours, may be more. That’s great you found your major trigger. But. Triggers change, not everyone has the same triggers. keep in mind this is a site about busting, over the years people have added other helpful things, but this isn’t ch.com. So when you start posting about a “cure” and refuse to stop using the word you really offend people here! God knows we all want a cure but what you found is no cure. Even though (to the best of my knowledge) @Psiloscribe Has not had a CH in years he doses 2x a year but would NEVER say he has a cure! Same goes for @Batch with his amazing (data driven!!!) results with his vitamin D protocol would never have the bravado to claim a “cure”. You are in a site that was created specifically for busting, as a separate site from CH.com for the purposes of sharing knowledge about the use of psychedelics to treat (NOT CURE) CH. so when you come here saying you have a cure, don’t want to hear anything about busting, and still claim you’ve cured yourself. I again think you need to do a quick search (upper right of your screen) for “cure” start with the oldest posts first and work your way up to your cure...
  12. And FYI, you’re only a victim if you allow yourself to be. Not my modus operandi.
  13. Teacher leave those kids alone... a Pink Floyd fan?
  14. Search for diet in this site may be there is more than one you can try. Plenty of options out there maybe yours isn’t the best one.
  15. No thanks, I’ll stick w busting, “fat people” not so nice. Very tactful I see. In my experience with busting and CH people they stick to it if it works for them. Busting doesn’t address triggers. It goes to the root cause. And like several people have told you your addressing a particular trigger for you. Please refrain from being rude!
  16. This seems to address your triggers. Not for every one. But an accepted proven method of treatment is busting and BOF is pain free due to it. So what is there to be gained is my point.
  17. What will she stand to gain she is already PF, in remission so to speak?
  18. before 8 am EST and there are over 90guests logged on in the last 30min. Spectacular.
  19. 700! Wow that’s nuts. I’ll have to start checking now that I know it exists. Interesting find DD, now if we could only get them all to the conference.
  20. So I just found the feature to browse online users. 13 pages of guests! Folks join us, if you have CH or are helping some one with CH join it will make all the difference! pain free wishes freud
  21. Curly fries? Wait that’s two words?
  22. I have Apria and its in the system @25lmp and I have no problem...
  23. Man I’m so sorry! I was so shocked when I got my oxygen. I didn’t bother to try getting it despite the first moron I saw writing me an incorrect script with none of the necessary info on it. A year later I saw a well respected CH/ HA doc. He just wiped out this form sent it in and they magically showed up. I went to the ER once to try it before I got it and it did work the time I tried it so I asked for it again. Expecting to have to fight tooth and nail to get it. But they just showed up s week later. I thought for sure my insurance company rejected it but they showed up no call or anything. Others have had an uphill battle no matter who they call. Eventually most find a solution. I think @Into Light has a deal for cash pay with Apria in FL. May be he can shed some light on the subject .
  24. Wow, you’re a baker too? Jk, one of my delivery guys would never take a tip. This guy showed up with waiters and a fishing pole And said I’m getting you out of the house! We’ve been friends ever since. He would always make sure i has what I needed. He just had a total knee and another guy took over my deliveries. He is super nice as well. I had just got Apria to give me 4 tanks a delivery. The new guy was supper nice too. He left partial tanks for me to use when he brought the new tanks (instead of just swapping them all out). So I started to amass extra tanks. So I started tipping him $10 when he came. He carries a tank upstairs to my bed room and all. If I’m up to it I bring the empties to the front porch to say thank you as well. Then he stopped by when I didn’t order but he was in the neighborhood and bring me extra tanks. I try and have a ten put aside Incase he shows up. Now my insurance co has a contract w Apria. My EOB always says they paid them nothing the some gibberish...per contract... since the oxygen isn’t costing me a thing I figure $40 a month isn’t bad in tips for all the tanks I have. A small tip goes a long way. Skip baking give em a ten. Unless they are pot brownies and your driver is into that. One driver asked me if I knew about psychedelics and Ch too. Would have been an eye opener if I hadn’t known.
  25. Try this number up here they don’t list numbers to call the local office here isn’t listed and they don’t give it out. This number is a local NJ number but goes to the national call center. They often won’t give out a price until they have a copy of the script. +1 (732) 905-1400 let ya know how it goes. My doc had an Apria form he filled out faxed in and a week later oxygen just showed up. They had M tanks and they have told me it’s their policy to give M tanks to cluster patients. Usually 2-3. You need another script to get E tanks for the car. My drivers just give them to me. Apria doesn’t count the tanks according to the guys
