Kay's right. Trepiline is originally an antidepressant, though it has a numer of other uses. It's not a tranquillizer, but is rather sedating and NOT addictive, so could be an advantage over ordinary tranquillizers in that way. It might help tension headaches, more than migraine, but could till be effective.
