Side effects of Zomig and Paxil?

Side effects of Zomig and Paxil?

Does anyone know if there is any hard evidence that it is unsafe to combine the migraine
medication Zomig with the antidepressant Paxil? I have been given samples of Paxil and after taking
it for a week had a migraine and before I took my Zomig I called 3 local pharmacists and they all
said it was a risk to take it. My primary care physician called the local hospital's pharmacy and
they said it was ok.

I recently then called a neurologist I had seen a while back and he did say at seminars he had heard of
the combination giving some bad side effects like shaking, weakness, but no doctor there had actually
had a patient that experienced it. My dosage is Paxil 10 mg. and Zomig 2 1/2 - 5 mg.

Does anyone take the combination and how have you experienced it? Thank you.
