I've used Imitrex for a long time, and I respond incredibly well to it. Unfortunately it is unbelievably expensive and most health plans have a maximum you can have per month.
If you can, try to use it as part of a combination of therapies, like oral or nasal Imitrex, oxygen, etc. For example, I use oral Imitrex for mild CHs (like at the beginning and end of a cluster), and oxygen for nocturnal attacks. I carry the injections for full blown attacks when I need quick relief.
