I just started using the Oxygen with my current cycle ( my CH's started about 9 yrs. ago ) I was prescribed the O2 at the onset of the CH's and was too stubborn to get the scrip. filled!!

This cycle I wasn't about to fool around and resolved myself to fight the demon on any level needed to provide relief. I use the 02 as an abortive like most people do and it seems to work most of the time for me. The trick is getting the Oxygen started in the very early stages of the CH and not waiting until the pain makes you start to pace. I usually inhale 8ml through a mask (those little nose "thingies" are a waste) for about 10 minutes and take a break - start again - take a break; usually about 3-4 sessions at 10 minutes each seems to abort the beast for me! Keep in mind that relief doesn't come immediately - it takes me about a half hour total until i am able to fall asleep until the devil decides to visit again!
