Best way to work with your neurologist


What do people feel is the best way to work with their neurologist. Do people recommend to their neurologist what drugs they would like to try. I’ve been put on Amitriptyline. Started 2 weeks ago and am feeling worse than ever. I know 2 weeks is a short time and think I am feeling so bad because I’ve worked too much (I work in online marketing and rarely take proper time away from the laptop). But I think he just puts everyone with a migraine on that drug. I haven’t seen it mentioned before on the forums. I kept a list of those people have had success with. Is it best to tell him what I want to try or just follow what he gives me (he diagnosed me with MAV, although not really sure if he believes in it, he said these will work for you, they work for all migrainers).
