Here's the article where they stopped clusters by injecting more testosterone:
1: Eur Neurol 1985;24(1):53-6
Use of testosterone in the treatment of cluster headache.
The study was carried out on 15 men suffering from the episodic form (12
patients) and the chronic one (3 patients) of cluster headache. Before treatment
the patients did not receive any drugs, and after determining the index of
attacks the treatment was commenced. For 7-10 days patients were given
testosteronum propionicum (25 mg) once a day intramuscularly, and then for the
same period of time testosterone (10 mg). Before treatment the index of attacks
was 3.66 (total number of attacks 308). In the 1st week of treatment the index
decreased to 1.11 (total number of attacks 94) and to 0.16 in the 2nd week. In 3
patients with the chronic form of cluster headache testosterone was ineffective.
