Just read Todd's entry. For me, Imitrex is the ULTIMATE four (plus) letter word. Tried it with injections, with pills. Hung on for almost a month (adding masochist to my disorders). Result was major, MAJOR rebound. 24-hour clusters with periodic pain-free episodes lasting 1/2 hour. May I ask, what pain medication does help? The only one that helps a tiny bit is Demerol (sic). Everything else makes for an increase (often plus nausea). The only positive side to this is that doctors usually perceive me as a nonaddictive person. Don't know if that would be true if a pain drug was found that actually helped.
Hang in, Soooz
