The cycle that wouldn't die, or, how can I miss my CHs if they won't go away?

OK, I'm chronic, but the vast array of meds that I ingest usually have the effect of making me episodic. Not this time. In addition to the usual dose of lithium, I've added sansert, which helped a little, but when I quit, they returned. I started prednisone which helped for awhile, until I got below 20mg. Now they're back. Not as high on the Kip scale, but enough to wake me up and piss me off and make me do the O2 rock for awhile. I go to a neurologist this afternoon. I want to ask him to try verapamil w/me instead of lithium. But of course, I fear the possible painful impact of the transition period, especially since I just started a new job...I'd rather explain CHs than demonstrate. We'll see.....
