Hi all..I'm 34, have had episodic clusters since age 19. I have tried it all, and last july I spent $1,200 in imitrex injectors, Sept, $900...Well, the longest I have ever gone without my demon friend is 6 months..until now! It has been almost 1 year without them. I'm drinking red wines, eating whatever I like, and living like a normal person. One word people REMERON. Its an anti depresent a pshyciatrist prescribed for me to battle a bout of post headache depression. There are little or no side effects, and one daily dosage has kept my headaches away almost 1 year !!!!! Before this I had resigned myself to the fact that I would have to live with these forever. I was on daily dosages of Calan (verapimil) and would routinely go on prednisone to abort cycles..Incidentally, when first prescribed, there was no indication REMERON would help my headaches, only my depression. He warned that if I got a cycle, I would have to stop usage if I wanted to use imitrex...The end of sept is 1 year...not a hint Please feel free to email me with any questions..hope this helps!
