In brief: Migraine

Recommend talking to your doctor about referral to a neurologist or pain management doctor, and let your doctor know about how u responded to prozac (fluoxetine).

In brief: Maxalt (rizatriptan)

Why can't you take maxalt (rizatriptan)? This risk for serotonin syndrome is present but low.
Just inform your neurologist. Most patients with migraines are depressed and vice versa. We often this combination.
