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.
