Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Seroquel is pregnancy category C drug (the studies have not been done of pregnant women, but studies in animal appear to cause harm to fetus). It can also cause miscarriage and other problems. Depakote on other hand is a pregnancy category D drug (the use has no risks to baby, but should be used only if benefits outweigh the risks), and can cause defects in baby if taken during first trimester. If you are planning for pregnancy, you should consider getting switched to safer alternatives. Visit your treating doctor and discuss your pregnancy plans. Your doctor will switch you over to new and safer alternative by tapering off the present medications. Do not stop taking the medications on your own.
Take care.
