As Charlie sez, the vitamins probably don't have anything to do with it (otherwise an ordinary vitamin supplement would work as well, and it doesn't, at least not for me). I have a theory (what else is there but theories?) that the oxygen supply to the brain may be slightly less when the stomach is busy digesting food, and the screwed-up clusterbrain issues a command for the blood vessels up there to dilate, in an attempt to hog more of the O2. This might be just hokum, but for whatever reason, I got some amazing relief during my last cluster merely by fasting for awhile and then eating only yogurt and a little fresh fruit. I tried drinking Ensure, which wasn't quite the right thing, but maybe Slim Fast would do okay. (I kinda like those liquid diet drinks, and they certainly do no harm.) Please let us know how it goes! Good luck.
