Hi all. I am the wife of a Cluster headache sufferer. He first started getting them 27 years ago and had never been able to find much relief. Year after year, for 6-8 weeks at a time he'd get his headaches several times a day. Finally we found a knowledgeable neurologist who'd learned a few things from a headache conference in Philadelphia. This is what he refers to as a "cocktail". My husband has used this rememdy each year and for the third time he is cured again!!!! Here's the recipe you want to speak to your physician about: Ergomar sl 4mg, Prednisone 5 mg, Valium 5 mg. You take each pill 3X a day for 7 days, then take each pill 2X a day for 3 days, then take each pill 1X a day for 3 days. He has been COMPLETELY cluster-free from the very first day and the clusters don't return for another year or two. This year he was given Cafergot instead of the ergomar sl. Not sure why, but it has worked just as well.
