Most of your post gave me the impression that you should not discontinue Effexor. You're brother had a bad reaction from discontinuing, possibly because the underlying illness was still there.

The link you provided is useful and seems to be in line with the official prescibing information, but take into account that the same information for almost all ADs is just as alarming.

You are right to be concerned and actively researching your meds. Also, Effexor hasn't been on the market as long as many other ADs and so long term use information is sparse.

At least consult with your psychiatrist before making a decision.

Wishing you well,
