I have been using it for a week. I had good results for 4 days -no clusters. Night 6 I had several wake up calls from clusters. I believe I took more than I should have that day 3 50mg with magnesium and B complex. I have not taken it all day today and seem OK so far. I am thinking the first one I took on day one was the right way to go, but taking it every day may be a mistake. It may not be good for a maintenance drug, which is what I needed, the real meds I have used only mask the problem. My only advice is if you try it only take one 50mg the first time then lay off it for a few days to see how you responded. Try it on the weekend when you can be home not at work. Treat it like a Imitrex shot , once you take one you know not to take another the same day. I have gotten rid of my shadows but the night time return was a surprise after several good days and nights. I am still working with it just not sure how to take it yet.
