Barbara D.,

My wife has tried it and has had success also, but for you and others, here is a question or comment about it. While on it, and after the headaches disappeared, she had some smoke inhalation from a fire, and it kicked the CH's right back in, regardless of the Topamax, so we gave up. We then tried it again about 6 months later, and it stopped them again, and she had surgery for Carpal Tunnel, and she woke up from the surgery with the CH in full blast. It seems that the Topamax will stop an active cluster, but can't stop one when induced by trauma. So if anyone tried it, and it stopped working, wait till the trauma is over and start again.
