i was put on prednisone about 4 years ago when i was in a cluster and the only thing it did was make me put on weight, oxygen works but its very difficult getting it in new zealand as it isnt recognised as a medication for ch sufferers. vince is actually my surname but i do have a partner however although i get the ch during the night i also get them a lot during the day and this time plenty of shadows as well. as my partner works long hours it impossible for him to be there when i need him, luckily my parents understand and have always been as supportive as they can. i will ask about the smaller imigran dose but at the moment i just pull the injector out early and some sprays out, i dont know how much but i still always get relief. in new zealand i only pay $15 for 6 injections i think thats about $7 us. its the only medication the govt subsidises. the only down side is the fact im covered in shocking bruises but its better than a full 6mg dose as i get quite bad side effects.
