I found that oxygen and Verapamil are the basic cure for my clusters
I've been having clusters for 9 years now and can't even remember
what I've taken for prescibed drugs this is the first year that I have
taken the Verapamil I just take one around 7 O'clock at night
I've been sleeping though the night which is the best feeling I've had
If a cluster dose happen it seems to be a dull pain and I can take the oxygen
it clears the cluster in about 5 minutes. I have the regulater set at 7.5 liters per minutes and breathe
though my nose and exhale though my mouth by breathing though my nose it seems that the air
goes stright to the affected area on the left side of my face.
I hope this makes scense let me know. Ive been takeing the oxygen for 5 years now and would not
switch it for anything.
