Wow! I just don't know how you and other people handle those multiple day after day Imitrex injections. It really tears up my insides (gastrointestinal stuff). But, whatever works. More power to ya. (That is good American slang, is it not?) I think you are right for considering something else for a maintenance medication. This site is full of suggestions.

I seem not to respond to a lot of medicines that are successful for other, like verapamil. Having chronic cluster headaches since age 11, I have tried much of everything. I still strongly prefer nortriptyline (Pamelor). For me, it goes right into the source of my pain unlike anything else. It is worth considering.

Good luck.
