Quoting an article which appeared in the Wichita Eagle, Wichita, KS.


People suffering from cluster headaches may soon find some relief from a new medication called zolmitriptan.
Among people receiving a 5 milligram dose of the drug, 47 percent reported quick relief from their cluster headaches, compared with a 29 percent rate of relief among people receiving an inactive placebo, said Peter Goadsby of the Institute of Neurology in London.
People receiving a higher dose of zolmitriptan had an even better success rate, but the 10 milligram dose needs further study to ensure safety, he reported in Neurology, the jounal of American Academy of Neurology.
