My name is Chris, I'm 22 years old, and I've had CH's for 11 years now. Unfortunately, they weren't diagnosed until 4 years ago. My neurologist started me on 600mg of lithium today(300mg lithobid extended release tabs taken twice daily). I take 480mg of Verapimil daily as well. My question is if the lithium is helping anyone of you, and what kind of side effects you've had from taking it. I was recently rediagnosed as having chronic instead of episodic clusters...rendering me unable to work for the past three months. At this point, I would do almost anything for some relief.
