Just to repeat what I posted a few days ago, there is a synthethic form of psilocybin commercially available. It is called Sansert, chemical name methylsergide; manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals. (This is the same company that formulated LSD, which was compounded as a headache cure also. LSD failed because of the extreme side effects.)
Sansert seems to work for some folks for clusters, but you have to take a lot of it over extended periods. It has its own side effects, including retroperitoneal fibrosis and fibrotic thickening of the valves of the heart. Because of these side effects, Sansert can only be taken for a maximum of six months at a time, then requires a drug holiday to purge the system.
Sansert was developed, it seems, in order to find a drug with the positive effects of psilocybin but without the psycedelic side effects. It doesn't stop cluster attacks cold, as we have seen. That is why we are interested to hear more reports about the Liberty Cap Tea.
