Good news! As I write this I seem to be in a period of relative remission. The LSD dosing seems to have coincided with this change of events. Over the past four weeks there have been a small handfull of individual attacks. None required Imitrex. The CH situation seems to be controllable now with coffee and O2. I have had no other medications, having discontinued wellbutrin about three months ago.
I am unsure of the exact substance or dosing, but have varied the dose up and down, and have never had the type of hallucination I remember from my youth. I question whether 10 years of imitrex has somehow altered this brain's ability to absorb lsd in a normal fashion, and hence the results obtained.
Rather than take large doses, I have chosen to take smaller doses, mostly about a week apart. The idea was to change the pattern of serotonin receptors on a longer term basis. So far, so good.
While we are on the subject of indole-ring compounds, you might want to take a look at a substance containing a triple-ring structure, "IBOGAINE". It is legal in the US, although the patent rights are in litigation. There is a group in Belize using it for certain treatments, including alcoholism and drug abuse, which is similar to how lsd was used in its early days. The MAPS folks are quite familiar with Ibogaine and may have an interest in linking one of those projects with CH research. I have a feeling that if the indole-ring compounds are the key to long-term treatment of CH, then a triple-ring compound just has to be better. Gotta go. PFD&N to all.
