I'm sorry to hear you're suffering from cluster headaches/migraines. They're widely believed to be the most painful medical condition ever catalogued. I honestly do feel for you.
It sounds like you've tried the obvious preventative treatments, such as topiramte (Topamax).
A few other medications that have been tried with varying degrees of success depending on the person are;
1. Cyproheptadine (Periactin)
2. Sumatriptan (Imigran)
3. Amitriptyline (Endep)
4. Lithium carbonate (LithiCarb)
These medications are also used to prevent typical migraines, but have showed success in cluster headaches too, particularly cyproheptadine.
Some or none of these may be helpful for you. Sadly with cluster headaches, it really is a game of trial and error.
All the best, and take care.
Sorry to hear you are having these migraines for such a long time, I know how it feels as I also used to suffer from them until I started taking Topamax (topiramate). Topiramate as the other member says prevents migraines and for me it has worked quite well, but bare in mind that we all react to medications differently.

I recommend you talk to your Neurologist about the possibility of trying this medication.
Best of luck.
