How to treat episodic cluster headache using gammaCore
As soon as a cluster headache starts:
Give yourself a treatment consisting of 3 two-minute gammaCore (nVNS) stimulations.
- Apply the conductive gel before each stimulation. After 2 minutes, gammaCore will beep twice and automatically turn off.
The device should remain off for 10 seconds after each stimulation
- Stimulations can be administered on the same side of the neck, or you can switch sides, if preferred
- After completing the 3rd stimulation, you should wait 3 minutes. If pain remains, apply 3 more two-minute stimulations
- You may treat up to 4 attacks (or 8 treatments) for a total of 24 stimulations per day
