Question

Pregnancy

I have been on Paxil for the last year, but from last week I have replaced the paxil with lexamil 20mg daily because of the paxil causing me to gain weight.I had a terrible lost last year and I am not able to cope without antidepressants at this stage of my life.We have decided to see if we can start a family, I am 32 and do not want to wait longer to start with a family.I want to know if I can still be on some kind of antidepressant if I am able to fall pregnant, or is there no way to be on medication as well as being pregnant?
Thanks
