To clarify the associated factors for negative response to sumatriptan nasal spray (NS) in patients with cluster headache, we investigated the involvement of clinical information before commencing NS treatment. The efficacy of NS was 77.3% (n = 17) for these 22 patients. Three factors for negative response to NS, "young age of onset ", "psychiatric disorder", and "the headache is not in the orbit," were found. Therefore, these factors are considered to be useful for predicting therapy before applying NS.
