Hello, what your doctor suggests is basically all right, but it would be nice if s/he could give some pointers as to use.
Calcium blockers are used as preventive medication. The dosis may be quite low to begin with when you feel a cycle approaching (or are you chronic? you didn't say). Say, 160 per day. Then if you need to, you increase to 240, 320 and up, sometimes even to 920 a day in dire need.
If they work for you, they may take a day or two to kick in, but if you keep upping the dosis and after a week they still do not work, they may not do anything for you. You might turn to other suggested medication, e.g. Lithium.
Check out the information under the buttons top left, and print it out for your doc.
Oxygen is used to cut attacks and works for many of us. Some pass it through a bubbler, some cool it even more with good results. For some it does not work at all.
Check out the oxy information under the buttons.
walk in beauty, annemarie
