Sorry to hear about your situation, sounds like a real hand full
for your family to handle. I would suggest that your wife get a
prescription for Oxygen. Used at 8-10LPM with an airtight
mask. Have her get to the O2 as soon as she thinks a
'ha' is starting, and hopefully she will have same
experience as many here have ('ha' aborted in 5 - 15
min). The Imitrex is the best abortive out there for
most of us but the injection is much faster acting then
the pill (second choice is the imitrex nasal spray).
The most used preventative is varapamill.

The best advice i can give her is to find a Dr. that
understands CH. Hope you all find some help soon.

Good Luck..........
