Best to discuss this with your treating / prescribing psychiatrist, because a lot more information is needed than you may have. He/she needs to balance risks. The Antidepressants differ in their degree of possible risk to the foetus, and this must be weighed against the possible risk to the foetus of you going untreated, which depends on many factors inluding the detailed history of your condition, severity, response to treatment, and so on. Similarly, if he/she judges the possible risks on Venlor as relatively high, a different AD may be considered
