Because a few people have reported abortive relief using hot sauce sublingually, I am asking that everyone chronic or in cycle try it and report results. Here's the way I use it:
Carefully place a teaspoonful of hot sauce (Tabasco, Frank's, Texas Pete, etc. My favorite is Cholula, but any should work. I suspect the the hotter the better, so if you try one of the habanero sauces, let me know.) UNDER your tongue at the first signs of an attack. (Under your tongue will not burn. Try not to get it on top of your tongue or on your lips.) Hold the sauce under your tongue for at least five minutes and try not to swallow. :-)) You should feel some relief within 10-15 minutes, hopefully. I hope it works for you because at about 5 cents a dose, that's a little cheaper than Imitrex, and doesn't require a prescription. :-)
