I have not seen it mentioned yet, but a medication I take is meperghan. This capsule contains 50 mg. of demerol, and 25 mg. of promethazine. This med is a lifesaver for those CHs that just won't let go. I also use it as a break from my imitrex routine. If you have some on hand, it can save you that midnight ride to the ER. (God I hated those) There was always a new doctor who wanted to give you a nuroexam or have you lay down. Anyway, The down side of this med is that it can be habit forming, and of course being an oral med it takes 30 mins to work. (That's a long time in cluster minutes) Still, it can be a nice ace in the hole. EOM.
