First off, get him off the dope. If for no other reasons, you see how poorly they work. There are a lot of meds out there for preventatives, like verapamil, Sansert, etc... and for relief that doesn't operate on an attempt to masquerade the pain, but on correcting the problem in the short term. Those are the triptan meds like Imitrex (nasal and self-injectables have been the most effective by the most people here, although some have had great results with the pill), Maxalt, etc... And there is also pure oxegyn, or O2, that has benefited what seems like the majority of people who've tried it and have CHs. There is a lot of useful information in the "medical info" link to the left of the board.
