All evidence I found seemed to point more towards CPH than to CH and imitrex and o2 have no effect on me.
I got a prescription for the indo from my general doctor (behind me nuero`s back) after I did some researching on my own with help from this site and others.

I was a bit worried about taking the indo after hearing about all the bad side effects,but i finally got the prescription filled yeasterday after having the worst HA I`ve had so far the night before. I have HA`s every single day,but the one I had the other night was BAD!!! It pulled me right out of bed at 3:30 AM and all I could do was pace around holding my head for about an hour. I dont know what the rest of you people would consider a ten to be,but this might have been one of them.

Well anyway,I decided right then and there that it was time to try the indo.
I have 50mg capsules and I`m supposed to take one every 8 hours. I took the first oe yesterday (Friday) afternoon at 2:00 pm and I havent had a single HA since. I have had some shadows though,but they only come around towards the very end of the 8 hour periods.
I`m assuming that the pills will take a while to really get in my system and I will eventually have no shadows at all. Or maybe the indo dosage will need adjjusting in order ro be fully effective. Whatever the case,it`s off to a damn good start and I feel pretty good about diagnosing my own problem!
