Hi all. I went to my doc today, feeling like I have tried everything under the sun to no avail....including shrooms (which maybe I didn't do exactly right, as I was too chicken sh_t to quit the lithium beforehand). Of course, I read the hopeful posts about neurontin, and considered talking to my doc about trying it. But I start a new job in a week, and I don't want to be coming off lithium at the same time beginning neurontin, and trying to be alert and cogent at the new job at the same time. So about the time I decided not to bring it up at this time, my doc asked if I've heard of Neurontin to treat clusters. I told him about the hopeful posts, and he assurred me that we can taper off the verapamil, taper on the Neurontin, and leave the lithium alone for now. SO, I begin tapering both ways, with my fingers crossed and my oxygen not too far away, as always. If I can manage to go a few days in a row occasionally without an attack, it will be a welcome change.
And unrelated to CH....this is the biggest audience I've had to brag to.....I caught my first 5-pound bass of my career last weekend. I know that for you-all down south, that's no big deal, but up here in the midwest, it's braggin' size.
