I'm going to be starting Protriptyline soon. My neurologist says it's unique in that it doesn't cause weight gain or sedation... but everything I've read online says it does cause sedation. I'm coming up on finals in school, and I don't want to impair my cognitive abilities. What is your experience with this drug?

Also interested in your experience with the other similar tricyclic antidepressants.

Note: I'm also receiving botox. I've been getting it for 1 yr now.. and even though it's expensive even with my insurance, I have noticed a significant decrease in my migraines and their severity. I went from having over 15 days a month with migraine or some kind of head pain to probably 5-10 at most.

Happy thanksgiving!
