Yes, it is OK to take these two medications together, and there are no worries with your allergy. (However, do avoid the OTC cough suppressant dextromethorphan, which can lead to a condition called Serotonin Syndrome if taken with Paxil).
Again, Thank you for the question - -DrMike

Sudafed is often combined with other drugs such as the dextromethorphan for cough, guaifenesin for chest congestion, antihistamines for runny nose and watery eyes... but the real one to watch out for is the dextromethorphan.
That's the one that can really lead to a rare but significant interaction called Serotonin Syndrome. -DrMike

I would like to add that Sudafed should not be used if you have any history of high blood pressure or certain heart conditions. Hopefully this fully answers your question Once satisfied please rate my answer. Thanks.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
