I've been taking Indicin for 5 months and now can't take it during the day because it makes me extremely dizzy. I'm in sales and have to drive daily...has anyone experienced this side effect? Has anyone taken other meds for HC and had relief? I've heard of Lyrica being effective in some HC sufferers. Any comments would be helpful!

I have this along with Trigeminal Neurolgia. I tried Lyrica and went all the way up to 600mg the max. It did not help me.

Although everyone is different, I ended up on a combo of topomax
cymbalta and inderal. This works very well for me. Imitrex for break through pain.

I wish you luck.
