Venlafaxine can be given with care. Your dose may need to be reduced and you will need to be monitored carefully.
This from " https://www.drugs.com/disease-interactions/venlafaxine.html"
Venlafaxine is metabolized by the liver, and both the parent drug and metabolites are excreted by the kidney. Patients with renal and/or liver disease may be at greater risk for adverse effects from venlafaxine due to decreased drug clearance. Therapy with venlafaxine should be administered cautiously in patients with impaired renal and/or hepatic function. A reduction in the total daily dosage is recommended.
