    LSD for the Treatment of Cluster Headaches
    RISK REPORT

    The cluster headache, described by one female sufferer as “more painful than childbirth”1 is a
    neurological disorder that causes excruciating headache pain, usually behind one eye. Cluster
    headaches affect males at a higher rate than females, and have a prevalence rate in the general
    population of between 56 and 326 per 100,000 people.2
    Unlike migraines, cluster headaches occur in a series. Cluster headaches followed by pain-free
    remission periods between cycles are considered episodic, while those occurring regularly for at
    least a year with no remission are chronic. The cyclical form predominates, leading researchers
    to believe there is a circadian component to the headaches.
    Buried deep in the chaotic history of psychedelic drugs is the fact that over 1,000 papers were
    written, and many trials were conducted, testing psychedelic drugs, including LSD (d-lysergic
    acid diethylamide) for the treatment of a number of illnesses,12 among them, migraines.5 LSD is
    a serotonin agonist (activator) that has neurologic properties affecting behavior, and
    vasoconstrictive properties that might reduce capillary swelling in cluster headaches.13
    Political antics, recreational use, urban legends of burned out acidheads, and designation as a
    Schedule I controlled substance sent all clinical research of LSD into deep hibernation for 30
    years.
