I've found two things that have been more effective than any medication so far. At the first hint of a CH, quickly drink two cups of very strong coffee. Don't sip them. Drink them as you would glasses of water. The other technique is to swallow 4 Advil liquid gel caps followed by one cup of very strong coffee. Using either of these methods will abort my CH in 10-15 minutes. I have been told not to ingest more than 800 mg of ibuprofen (Advil) at one sitting, and no more than 2400 mg in a 24-hour period. Best of luck.
