Like I said in a previous post...

...nothing else out there will abort attacks for more than a few hours at a time. So the fact that shrooms have given 'only' a few days relief from each dose is still pretty good. What both yourself and sjoerd might want to try (be a guinea pig like me!) is to find the minimum effective dose that provides those short burst of relief. For instance, to achieve a level 1 trip I need to take around 20 Liberty Cap. I have found that even 6 Liberty Cap have an effect on me. I have also found they have some effect on the CH. Now if you guys find you only get 5 days relief each time, no matter what strength of dose you take, then why not try some REALLY SMALL doses to see if those also provide 5 days relief. I for one would not like to trip - even at Level 1 - once every 5 days, although it is probably better than being hit with CH, however taking a 1/4 of the level 1 dose is almost imperceptable. Assuming you are doing doses of 1-2g dried right now, then start decreasing down through 1/2g and 1/4 and so forth until you find the minimum effective dose.

If you are prepared to do this, then your feedback may prove invaluable to many other sufferers for whom the shrooms only provide good relief as opposed to miraculous!
