I would get migraines or cluster headaches that lasted 3-4 days about every 2 weeks. Being unemployed and having no health insurance, the imitrex my doctor prescribed was somewhat effective but too expensive. The side effects were rather unpleasant.
After watching a program on the NATGEO channel called ‘Drugs; psychedelics’ which featured a man about my age who used mushrooms for his headaches, I just had to try it. I have used them before, recreationally about once a year but had never heard of the migraine connection. I got them out of the freezer and minced them (one cap and stem large), putting them in capsules as I had observed on TV. This helped with the foul taste.
The headache was gone within one hour. It’s been over a month and no headaches. I did this at least 3 hours after a meal and drank lots of water. I get profuse watering of the mouth. Overall it’s a pleasant experience, best in a relaxed, quiet environment with soft music or nature sounds.
