The same article I talk about below also says: MAO inhibitors, which increase serotonin in the synapses, prevent migraine headaches, ... Anyone know which drugs are MAO inhibitors and has anyone been on them as a preventative.

Disclaimer: Much of what I read deals with migrains and not specifically CH (lot more info on migraines). I'm working off the assumption that serotonin plays much the same role in both types of headaches since Imitrex is a serotonin agonist (copycat or synthetic serotonin if you will) and works on both types of headaches. So please pardon my use of the word migraine in these posts. I just try to quote the articles.
Also can't say if the articles are fact. If I wanted too, I could read about hazel eyes and orange peel complexions too. So take it for what it's worth.
