I took propanolol for about 5 cycles and yes it helped a bit - I probably went from a Kip 10 to a Kip 8 which was better than nothing. But now I'm on Methysergide (2 mg three times a day) and Lithium (125 mg twice a day) and whilst it doesn't work completely (does anything?) It does reduce the pain (usually to a Kip 6/7) and shortens the cycle. I think as with every CH sufferer you're just going to have to pester your doctor to try everything known to man until you find what is right for you - and which almost certainly won't be right for the next person. Hang on in there!!
