Hi, I'm new. I'm a woman who's had CHs every fall for the
last 29 years in a row, but this time I am able to PREVENT
them with the following regimen:
120 mg Inderal twice a day, and 25 mg Elavil at bedtime.
Most evenings I still start a mild one (what people in
the non-CH world would call a "bad headache"),
but I can usually abort it by running in place for a
couple of minutes (and do again if headache is still there
after 5 minutes). Plus I sleep well every night (!!).
I'm posting this in the hope that this might work
for some of you. (Note that I would gladly tape squirrel
magnets to my head, put garlic cloves between my toes,
eat 12 yoghurts a day, etc., if I thought it might
prevent the demon's visit, so I welcome ALL of
the suggestions made on this forum, outlandish or not.)

Best wishes from Ann Arbor
