many of us here feel that narcotics do very little in the treatment and management of cluster headaches. There are other medications that work as preventative and abortive treatments instead. I'm very sorry for the loss of your brother, please know that. Cluster headache is a horrible disease with no present cure. If you want to honour your brother's memory and help other folks who suffer, you may want to rethink the narcotic strategy as well as identifying in your profile that he died because of cluster headaches, not just headaches. Maybe you should try promoting OUCH (Organization for Understanding Cluster Headaches) instead of narcotics for chronic pain relief? Just a suggestion, but it sure would help a lot more.
Again, I'm so sorry you lost your brother.
