Is There An Alternate Treatment For Hemicrania Continua Besides For Indocin?

I have been diagnosed with hemicrania ccontinua after struggling for 8 yrs with excrutiating headaches. I have been through the wringer, on all meds there are for migraines. up until recent diagnosis. indocin was actually first medication that relieved my headaches. first time in yrs that a day would go buy without a headache. But unfortunately, i cannot continue with it due to fact that developed bleeding ulcers. Is there any alternate treatment available?
