you're right Drum
I DIDN'T mention verapamil
and i KNOW you think it works great
I haven't ever tried it because I'm waiting for someone to say it prevent their headaches

I have trouble with the idea of " I still get headaches, but they might have been worse if I wasn't taking it"

but anyway, it wasn't an oversight -
because I was talking about abortives, but probably didn't make that clear

but even then, I forgot cafergot -
the old stand-by - so you're right
i DID leave something out

which actually works much like imitrex, but isn't as finally "targetted" at headache -
cafergot effects the whole body,
which is how i has some possible nasty side effects
but they're easy to see coming before it's too late if you know what to look for

and is a hell of a lot cheaper than imitrex too !
