I have had CHs since puberty and recently they have gotten much worse. I am 53 so I've been suffering for about 40 years. My "home cure" is to take about 2,000 mg's of ibuprofren and 3 Sudafeds. Recently my doctor treated me for chronic Asthma with Prednisone and I thought I died and went to heaven. It actually snuffed out my headache. He does not want to use this for ongoing though treatment due to my age and possible side affects. Over the years I have tried various drugs such as Duradin, Maxalt-MLT, Vicodin, etc. with minimal relief. I also suffer from severe tinnitis maybe due to all the aspirin, tylenol and ibuprofen I have taken over a 40 year period. That started about 15 years ago. I have been taking Ambien for the past 5 years so that I can fall asleep in spite of the 50dbs of screaming in my ears. What other medications might give the same relif as Prednisone?
