Our expert says:
Antidepressants are indeed frequently prescribed in chronic pain management. Imipramine as such may however cause sedation if he is sensitive to sedative drugs as you've mentioned - He may perhaps benefit from a newer type of antidepressant e.g. duloxetine, etc.
Best would be to have your doctor - or even a neurologist should it be severe - assess his status and work out a treatment plan.
All the best.
