Several dozen people have found complete relief with this treatment. Three or four of the most recent experimenters have posted in just the last few days; Henk, Sjoerd, hedferst, and more... there are so many success stories now that it is hard to keep track of them.
For episodic clusterheads, such as yourself, usually all that is required to completely end a cluster cycle and leave you painfree until the beginning of the next cycle is a single sub-hallucinogenic dose of either psilocybin (found in "magic mushrooms") or LSD. By a sub-hallucinogenic dose I mean just enough to be the equivalent of a two or three-beer "buzz". In rare cases, particularly if the first dose was too cautious, a second dose is required 4 or 5 days after the first.
I am unaware of even a single episodic clusterhead who didn't get complete relief, presuming that he or she was FREE OF OTHER MEDICATIONS at the time of dosing. There are certain medications which will block the effect of these compounds, and it is critical to refrain from taking these medications for several days before dosing with either LSD or psilocybin.
It may sound weird at first, especially if you are not familiar with the history of the development of LSD, or the molecular relationship between standard CH medications (such as ergotamine, cafergot, DHE45, Imitrex) and the hallucinogenic compounds, but there is a logical theory as to WHY it works, and researchers who have been contacted on this subject are unsurprised to hear that it works.
LSD is illegal. Psilocybin mushrooms are illegal in many (but not all) countries. In Holland, for example, these mushrooms can be bought readily in coffee houses.
It should be noted that giving a spare Imitrex injector to a friend in need is also illegal.
I suggest you check the information at this link, particularly the section titled "sufferer's experiences" where there is a compilation of many posts from this board (thank you again, Ueli) detailing experiments by fellow clusterheads. These posts have so far only been collected until May of this year. There have been many many more reports since that time that can only be checked by going through the archived posts of this message board.
Once you have checked this site, you can make an informed decision as to what your next move should be.
