My neurologist has just prescribed a low dose of Effexor to help with my persistent migraines. He thinks it will be OK to take the Maxalt if i have a break through headache, since it is such a low dose (I'm working up to 37.5 mg.) Has anyone had any experience with these?

I haven't had experience with those exact drugs, but have been on moderately high doses of zoloft and high doses of imitrex simultaneously. I didn't find it to be a problem at all.

Whether or not serotonin syndrome strikes has a lot to do with: specific med, dose and individual physiology. If the Effexor is low dose, and your neuro has given the green light, then I would say give it a shot. If you're feeling uncomfortable you can always try taking a half dose of the maxalt.
