I'm quoting from www.postgradmed.com/issues/2001/01_01/dalessio.htm
"Chronic cluster headache can be treated prophylactically with vverapamil or lithium, or both. Valproc acid used alone or with verapamil often is effective."
My doc has put me on 240mg verap SR once a day and epilim (valproic acid) 200mg 3 times a day. This combination seems to do the trick and it didn't take a week to kick in, only 1 day.
As you know at that stage I had 4 - 6 CH attacks per day and this combination worked fast.
I'm no medical professional, I'm only saying this worked for me and maybe you should try the combination because I hate to know that you're in pain.
