Goadsby told drummer we had too much serotonin.
The triptans and SSRIs increase the amount of serotonin to stop the headaches.
My reading says that 5HT causes the blood vessels to constrict. Even read one where they said 5HT could be injected to abort headaches.
Melotoin is a byproduct of 5HT and there is a study in the library that says clusterheads have low nightime melotonin.
So I'm going with low 5HT. Sorry Goads.
