Cluster headache advances in British Medical Journal

I'm so excited to see a good article on cluster headache in the BMJ.
This article has lots of info on treatments too to educate our Docs.

Just read this. The article mentions 10mg of Melatonin as a treatment for use during a cluster. Does anyone use this? How do you get it as it's not readily available in the UK?

 It's definitely available on prescription presuming your gp is willing to prescribe for cluster. You could go armed with article to ask for some!

I think it needs to be a private prescription but I will try.

P Hurst you could try asking your headache neuro to prescribe it for you, if you have no luck with your GP.
