I found that 20mg a day will keep me almost headache free. I had an illicit...(spelled right???) source and stayed on it for about 6 months. Knew it was stupid but for the first time i was pain free. I too had been started on 80 mg a day with the idea of breaking my cycle. (I'm episodic 2x a year spring and fall 2 to 3 months in duration. Stayed on it 6 months and was pain free. When i went off my entire body broke out in acne. Was irritable as hell while I was on it, put on a lot of weight, had a lot of trouble with joint pain....but no headaches. Would strongly advise against long term use. Try lithium, verapamil and oxygen. Seems to be the consesus on the board these are the best first line defenses. Best of luck!!!
