I usually bring them on myself too - stress, clenching my jaw, holding tension in my neck
Ouch!!!
Maxalt is another triptane, right?

Tried sumatriptane, but it didn't help. Neither did opioids. The only med that's partially successful (against the shadows, but not necessarily the attack peaks) is an anticonvulsant. Combined with Metamizole it even gets rid of the peaks, but whenever I have to take the stuff, I'm like, totally drunk.
Usually I have cluster episodes of three to seven weeks, with breaks of two to three months between episodes. Right now I'm in my fifth week, with three weeks of anticonvulsants under my belt .

Semper HiFi!
