Customer Question

Hi,
I'm 46 years old Iranian male. I've been told that my chlostrol is a bit high but I don't take any tablet for it. I'm suffering from severe cluster headache. Currently taking sumatriptan injections and spry. It's not easy to obtain my medication and I'd like to know if there is any cure for my condition. What is the reason for my headaches. My last severe attack was on 2010 and since then I visit several specialist and had lots of screening. My new attack started fron 10th of March and it doesn't seem getting better or want to go. I started taking 300mg aspirin from yesterday.
Please let me know what I need to do.
Thank you,
Mohsen

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

There is a cure.

There are medicines that you can take to prevent attacks

I recommend one of two

1)propranolol

2)topamax

Both are taken daily and highly effective at preventing headaches
