    Zolmitriptan AM/PM

    Hello. I'm in the middle of a crisis that usually lasts four weeks and happens roughly every year, with up to three very strong headaches per day. What is different about this time is that almost every night, the pain starts while I'm sleeping, which doesn't allow me to do something before it gets so intense that it can't be stopped. However, I wanted to share with you that I started using the nasal zolmitriptan medication (which in Colombia -S.A.- is called Zolnox) not only as an abortive method but also as a preventive method, before I go to sleep and right after I wake up. I've been doing this for the last four days and I've been pain free.

    cluster headaches and exercise

    Thanks for the advise. I´ve tried it in the past with very little success, but it is definately something to consider when there is no other thing to do.

    cluster headaches and exercise

    I had ben pain free for two years and a half, but unfortunately started a new cycle two weeks ago. I like excercising a lot, swimming, running, hiking, biking...you name it. Yesterday, the pain woke me up during the night but I controlled it with zolmitriptan. Usually when I do that early, I'm pain free for pretty much the rest of the day, so I decided to leave home before I started working. I was hiking a steep route nearby and right at the toughest part I started feeling the pain coming back. I was close to the top so I decided to finish, even though I didn't have any "tool" with me to stop it and was about an hour away from home. I got to the top with my head exploding, but right when I started going down and my heart slowed down, the pain started to go away.
