Hey Kona, Welcome! I am sorry you have the CHA's. I too, like Steve have not had the clusters, so I don't know for sure if treatment for CHA's and other Migraines is the same. But I had MHA's several years ago for varying periods of time in my late 20's & 30's. I had stopped having them, except for maybe 1 or 2 a year, and then about 2 years ago, with the onset of peri-menopause, I started getting hormone induced Migraines.

I get them about 2-4 days each month, generally just before and at the beginning of my cycle. I have had so much luck with Imitrex. I take the oral dose of 50 - 100mg when I first start to feel one coming, and it has been a Godsend.

I agree that I would like to know a little more about what your experience has been. Again, welcome to the board and please post often. Take care, CMP/MM
