When your CH first starts, and you have confirmed it's more then a ghost, what are your first steps?
Do you go right for the O2 and suck that for 10 minutes to see if its gonna help?
Do you go right for the Trex and shoot up?
Do you do the both the Trex and the O2 immediately?
What is the most popular method yous guys do immediately when you need to start doing something?
Thanks and PF wishes

If trex were an option for me, I would still try O2 first. After 10 minutes, I'd know.

For any abortive: the sooner you take it the more likely it will be effective. Once an attack is well developed, even the best meds become much less effective.
 
Whether you use both oxygen and Imitrex depends on your wallet! But I'd be inclined to use only one item at a time--the one which your personal experience says works best for you.

I use the O2 first, if it doesn't maintain or lower the level of pain after about 10 mins, I use the zomig and continue to breathe O2 until the zomig takes effect.

Religion and sex are powerplays. Manipulate the people for the money they pay. Selling skin, selling God, the numbers look the same on their credit cards. Triptans cause rebounds. Learn it, believe it, live it. I use triptans as the absolute LAST RESORT when treating my CH.

During my last full blast o2 was not doing the trick for me... it would hold one off but would rarely abort.
 
I also had a few that spanked the shit out of me... 0 to 1000000mph in a very short time.  You know the word... agony.  
 
So those two issues combined have me reaching for the Trex as soon as I know it is the real thing.  I have the needle through the skin so fast it would make your head swim.  
 
Next full episode I will retry the o2 thingy.

I use cafergot instead of trex.
 
At the first sign of a hit, I drop a tab of cafergot and start huffing the O2.  The O2 knocks the attack down in about 10 minutes (never getting above a 3 or so) and the cafergot keeps it from coming back.
