My husband Greg has been on a cycle for about a month, he was only having one a night at 2am, then it went to 2AM and 4;30AM. The 2am was a 10 and the 4;30 am about a 4. He is taking verapamiel 240mg. So here is the nutty part..saturday night we went to the store to buy goodies and he said he wanted to try something he liked when he was a kid which was ginger ale and welchs grape juice mixed together, so we bought it. That night he had a 12 oz glass of it and that night no headache for the first time in a month. Sunday night he had a CH and no ginger ale and grape juice. So Monday evening felt a large shadow and remembered what he did on Saturday, drink the juice mixture and the shadow disappeared within 10 minutes and taking a daily dose, have been headache free for the last 4 days, he may be at the end of his cycle or verapamil is finally working. But as he says he would eat dog shit with mustard on it if it would keep the CH's away.
So here is the mixture 3 parts welches 100% purple grape juice and 1 part schweppes ginger ale. He said it dosen't taste to bad unless you hate grape juice.
It's a long shot but it's cheap, he really feels this is helping, he has also been able to have a few beers.
Pain free nights everyone..
Fran & Greg
