120 mg 3 times a day with a heart that was skipping beats, never helped my CH but was too weak to do anything, good thing the doc on call looked in my records and got me off of it, but was followed through with EKG's for a year afterwards, if it wasn't for the CH's, actually a very comfortable way to die, everything just slowly fads away, no other kind of pain.

Or some combination of physchotropic drugs that sent me into a solid three day cluster, doc wouldn't give me a DM shot even though I begged for it, said I had to dry out first.

Or the contaminated O2 tank, changed a bad CH into a double cluster that lasted 12 hours.

Or the Xanax, that didn't touch the CH's, but I couldn't remember if I had one or not.

Or the Imetrex, a guaranteed 18 hour cluster, they're more, but these were the worse.

Was involved with water treatment electronics, two ways, filter all the crap out of the water, or add even more chemicals in an attempt to neutralize the harmful ones, but this was done with careful measurement. I look at CH treatment the same way, either filter out the stuff with known clean O2, or add a bunch of more chemicals in attempt to neutralize with the exception that doctors don't make any measurements but just take wild guesses, not with my body anymore, I hit them with hard questions now. CH's are bad enough and some drugs can make them even worse, absolutely no science in CH treatment.
