If I lay down during an attack, the pain increases to a Kip 10 within seconds. So laying down is not an option. Additionally, I'm using 480mg/day of verapamil with 300mg/day of lithium. It took a while for my body to tolerate the lithium. When I first started using it some three weeks ago, it took the headaches down from 4 a day to 0 in 24 hours. During that time I felt nauseous and everything I drank or ate tasted salty. Every time I walked it felt as if I was walking into a head wind. At this point in time however, in addition to being pain free, I feel quite normal. No nausea, no nothing. So for some of us, it has some benefits.
