One reason the o2 helps in the day or evening and not at night - If you use the o2 as the attack is first onsetting, you can pretty much nip it in the bud. When you fall asleep (especially if you are a deep sleeper) by the time you awake with the attack, you are already full blown, and they are almost impossible to abort when they reach full potential.
If the 8 liters doesn't cut it, I would reccommend going up to 10. I always did when the pain got too bad. Unfortunately, o2 no longer helps me.
By the way, what is the Ergodryl? I am guessing it is an Ergotamine - but is it in liquid form? And when are you using it? As the attack onsets, or when you are already full blown?
The reason I am asking is I have taken Ercaf (which is Ergotamine and Caffeine), when an attack first onsets and, within 20 to 30 minutes, it is over. I don't think it helps though if you are already too far into it.
