“Response of cluster headache to psilocybin and LSD”. 
Neurology. 2006 Jun 27;66(12):1920-2.
The authors interviewed 53 cluster headache patients who had used psilocybin or lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) to treat their condition. Twenty-two of 26 psilocybin users reported that psilocybin aborted attacks; 25 of 48 psilocybin users and 7 of 8 LSD users reported cluster period termination; 18 of 19 psilocybin users and 4 of 5 LSD users reported remission period extension. Research on the effects of psilocybin and LSD on cluster headache may be warranted.

This article has a brief thanks to Erowid. Our cluster headache survey, ongoing for over four years, was one of the sources for data and recruitment used for this paper.

We hope that the work on this will continue and improve the lives of those who suffer from cluster headaches.
