  1. Hello: My husband is in a very bad cycle right now and has been taking two shots of Sumatriptan a day for 4 days in a row — we are not sure how many days in a row he can take these shots and cannot find any clear guideline. Does anyone have any insight on sumatriptan injection dosage for several days in a row? many thanks!
  2. 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
  3. hey everyone, thanks for accepting me into this group i have been misdiagnosed with migraines for years. The past 4 years i have been experiencing what i now know is episodic cluster headaches. it starts off with one attack a day and shortly escalates to 8+ attacks a day. I am on day 14 and going to the emergency department today to beg to see a neuro, get scans done and try the oxygen. I have had scans when i was 15 (25 now) and nothing was found. i have a referral to see a neuro but cant afford it/the wait times are too long for me. i have trialed numerous preventatives, currently trial
  4. Hello everyone, I found this site a few weeks ago and have been very much appreciating all the wonderful information and advice contained within. It's also very nice to know there is a community of people that have been going through the same types of things. Much love to you all! After two trips to the emergency room two nights in a row about 5 weeks ago, I was referred to a neurologist. It took about a month to get the appointment and I was prescribed sumatriptan injections (6mg/0.5ml per injection), oxygen and I was switched back to verapamil 120/mg 3x per day after having been on
  5. Hello Clusterbusters! Comforted/distraught to be among you. Here is a brief history of my life with clusters so far, leading up to my diagnosis and including the treatment I am currently undergoing. Perhaps it will provide some succor to other suffers, as many of your stories have for me. I would also appreciate any advice regarding my current and future hopes for coping and treatment. I was recently diagnosed with CH, but have been suffering from attacks for at least four years. (For demographic interest, I'm a 42-year-old white male.) The first CH cycle was the worst, both because the
  6. Has anyone ever tried antibiotics to treat cluster headaches? So, I thought I had sinus infections when I first started getting CH about 10 years ago. I wasn't diagnosed. I was in my 20's and I think my stepfather would get sinus infections so I came to the conclusion I had them too. I have none of the symptoms of sinus infections however, aside from the splitting headache. I also get migraines so I would confuse my CH for migraines, but the CH lasts for days, even about a week or longer. So I was going to a doctor about 1 every 2 months for these "weird headaches" other than my
  7. I am 72 now and have CH since I was 21. Episodic. Went to headache specialist back in the 60's and was diagnosed. I have tried every drug there was. Some which worked and most didn't. The ones that worked had such bad side effects I would stop taking them. For the past 10 years I have been using Sumatriptan injections which work great but has been noted had some side effects. Are there anyone here that is over 70 and what have you been using to combat CH?
  8. Hi all, I'm new here. I live in the Caribbean and were I live there is no Specialist for Headaches . I had to do my research my self and found out about Sumatriptan. But on My island I can only find the 50mg tablets . I started using Sumatriptan and now I read a article saying that Sumatriptan makes the cycle longer and the CH worse.
