Hi everyone,
I have suffered with clusters for about 6 years. 1 cluster ~5 weeks each year 1 headache/day 1-4hrs. usually ~1-2 am onset. I know not nearly as bad as many here.

I have always had my cluster hit between December and February, but none this year - (possibly since lower stress ie not working by choice). 1 week ago I tried Xenical (the fat blocker) and the same night I got a cluster totally different part of the year from ever before. I obviously have not dared to take the Xenical after the first two days. I know no one seems to know the cause of clusters, but has anyone had Xenical or another medication trigger a cluster? Any help would be appreciated.
