Caffeine works very well for me. I utilize coffe
in the a.m., and Pepsi througout the day. I just keep
taking a few sips every now and then during the day.
It works fine as an abortive. I does particularly
well when I combine it with 4 Advils (200 mg ea.)
and 1 actifed. I take those on daily basis, every
4 hours whether I have a shadow, or attack or not,
during the worst of the episode. As the episode eases,
I take the meds as I wake up and before I go to
sleep, while taking caffeine consistently during
the day. I taper off the caffeine after I stop taking
the meds, so the caffeine is more effective in my
next episode (do not want to build up resistence
to one of the few helpers I can afford).
I know that this is not nuclear medicine, nor voodoo
medicine, thus many sufferers will not agree with
the therapy that works for me. However, I found that
sticking to the therapy, being consistent and allowing
it to work its magic has worked for me for the last
7 years without breaking the bank.
