CH does take over your life or should I say, takes your life away.
Sufferers spend their time in pain, getting over the pain or waiting for the next one to hit.
Unfortunately a lot of insurance companies see drugs like maxalt as migraine drugs. People with migraines get hit, maybe, a couple of time a week. That's the standard that the insurance companies use in deciding how much of the drug they will cover. The only way around this is to get his neuro to go to bat for him with the ins. co.
Another trick a lot of use with the drugs is to have your doc give you a stnding perscription for the drugs. Get it filled every 40 days even if he's not having headaches. Stockpile the stuff so you have a large enough stash when the CH do start. I know that isn't any help right now but maybe for next time.
Good luck to both of you.
