I've been on Effexor for months for depression and general anxiety disorder. 150mg in the morning. It has a upper type effect so if you usually wake up with a cluster at night you need to make sure you only take it in the morning. I felt like hell while my body adjusted to the dosage. (you have to work up to a full dose and it takes a couple of months for the effects to become noticeable) Effexor is NOT a CH med but it does regulate Serotonin which has been suspected of having something to do with CH. I can't really say that it has helped with my CH but it has surely been beneficial in dealing with the depression and anxiety I have because of them.
