how long does his cluster normally last. I notice that it was 6 or 7 weeks from the time his cluster started until it was aborted by the shrooms (or do they normally end on thier own in 7 weeks).

I didn't brew tea. I was in the 2nd week of my cluster. The first week had been very mild so no meds were used. The second week, I took one tablet of maxalt about 3 days before I did the shrooms. On an empty stomach, I threw 2.5 grams of homegrown in a blended with some oranje juice. Whipped it up and downed it in one breath.
In a couple of minutes I could feel it. By 15 minutes I was wiped out. For the next 3 hours I sat on the couch, afraid to stand up because I thought I would fall over.

I dosed 3 more times after that. Once a week. 2 grams just shoved in my mouth and chewed up. Each time, wiped out!! By the 2nd dose my cluster was building dramatically so I had to start meds (verap, prednisone, triptans).

BTW - I didn't enjoy the high either (which is probably good for a recovering drunk like me).
