hi...ive had ch for 17 yrs. the past 3 or 4 months has been 4 to 6 per day. i keep an oxygen tank next to my bed so when the beast wakes me at nite i go right for the o2 and also take imitrex. i dont take the o2 to work, i am a truck driver luckily so i can pull off the road when one hits and take some imitrex. i dissolve a 100mg tab of imitrex in a bottle of water and usually drink half (50mg) when i get a ch. i go thru 2 bottles a day (200mg). thats the max my neuro told me i could take. you need 02 and also get on a preventative from your neuro. also, maybe check the OUCH site for a good neuro close to where you live. good luck...
