I really thought that, for whatever reason, I was very fortunate to be over these clusters. It had been so long, I really had lost count of the years, but I think it has been 8, 9 or maybe even 10 years since my last one. I used to get them every 3 or 4 years since the year 1966.
But, 3 weeks ago, they started again. Who can figure out why? Nothing has changed in my life, level of stress or food intake. The one positive thing is that, since 1991, I have been on the anti-depressant Prozac. I'm wondering now if that has helped keep them away for this long. But then, if that's the case, since I am still on the drug, why did they come back?
This time my doctor has me on Verzulan PM 100 mg/day which she will probably increase this week, and Maxalt 10mg to take when one comes on. So far seems to be helping somewhat. I think the Verzulan needs to build up before it helps completely.
One thing that I don't remember from the last times, is that I feel like I'm on the verge of one almost constantly! I have a few 'free'times. Also, they have almost always come this time at night, after I go to bed.
I'm rambling, but just wanted to share. Thanks.
