In brief: Non-standard answer

Cluster headaches are traditionally difficult to treat.
Many of the migraine treatments are ineffective and opiates may be of only modest benefit.A less traditional treatment, neuroprolotherapy, has shown some promise.It appears to calm the nerves down & cut pain during episodes.Still, it doesn't prevent recurrences.Nutrition may be a factor.Naturopath may be helpful in decreasing recurrences.
