I have suffered from depression/anxiety most of my life and take meds as a treatment. However, I keep a journal and I have found for the past Two years that depression I sink into precedes CHs but my log has slim evidence and I am not a qualified researcher
But as you may know, Antidepressants raise or inhibit reuptake of this endorphine. Seretonin (and other brain hormones possibly) seem to play a role in Cluster Headaches. So antis may kill 2 birds with one pill.
Even though I do not favor alternative meds due to lack of proper testing and research, 5-HTP (L-5 Hydroxytryptophan ) and DHEA (?)can help according to health sites. But Usually a combination of CH drugs and antis help; they do for me, BUT check with your Doctor
