need some oxygen tips

Been using o2 for ages and all ok. but last couple of weeks been getting hit hard with clusters, not severly strong but on/off all the time.

Using the demand valve o2 which has very quick success everytime but the next cluster hits between 5min-an hour after the o2.

with the normal o2 used 20+10 mins to prevent reoccuring, but cannot manage 20 mins on demand o2 get too sleepy and breathing in getting harder.

gave o2 a miss for a week, but still the same problem again today.

[also use imigran jabs max 2 a day]

David, not sure how to answer you. We have had reports of this happening. Sometimes it quickly reverts back to its efficent abortion of the attacks, sometimes it takes some weeks to revert.Sorry I cant really help.

Just a thought David, try not to breathe too heavily - I know that sounds daft, but I find that I 'suck' in a breath quite hard on the demand valve and there is no need to, just breathe normally.
