I've had chronic clusters for 16 years (now 49). Taking Lithium, verapamil, cafergot. They work most of the time. When a cluster does sneek through, 2 Aleve work real quick to abort the pain.. My neurologist says that I will probably have them until my mid to late fifties.
I used to be a real strong coffee drinker. But it's only been in the last few years did I realize that caffiene was a trigger for my CHs. Eliminating caffiene has allowed the medication to work better but not to the point of eliminating the meds, and now the headaches are few and far between. But.. I don't go anywhere without my meds and 2 Aleve, not even the market (or the bathroom).
