I have had cluster headaches since I was 21, i'm 39 now. I had tried various drugs without much luck. In 1995 I moved and had to go to a new neuroligist who prescribed me prednisone which has aborted my cycle almost immediately after starting.
I have just finished a taper of 80 mg for 5 days, 60 mg for 5 days, 40 mg for 5 days, 30mg for 3 days, 20 mg for 3 days and 10 mg for 3 days. So far so good.
I get the headaches this time of the year, every year, and with the exception of one year, I have had them every year since I was 21.
One thing I found though, I am very careful to taper as instructed and double check the correct dose. I have made mistakes in the past only to get the headaches to come on stronger.
Good luck.
