I disagree that the withdrawal from Effexor cannot kill you. Many people have committed suicide during Effexor withdrawal, according to comments online at www.petitiononline.com/effexor/. Over 6000 people, including medical professionals, have signed it. I also felt suicidal during withdrawal, and I was not suicidal before I was placed on it. The emotional low that comes during the withdrawal is extremely serious and no patient should have to face that without knowing about it ahead of time. I've gone off 5 antidepressants and none of the others was anywhere near as serious as this.
