Hi Patrick,

Don't know if there is a connection but here's my experience: I'm a chronic CH sufferer for 21 years and a recovering addict. I've been clean (no drugs, no alcohol) for 13 years. During my first year clean, I did notice that I had almost no CH attacks. I was hopeful, but eventually the headaches returned to their old pattern of daily episodes with a week or two pain free every couple of months. 18 months ago I started taking Vioxx and haven't had a CH attack during this time. Perhaps I've found a long term solution for me. We'll see.
