Switch from Fluoxetine to Effexor

I have been taking 20mg Fluoxetine for a year but have switched to 37.5mg Effexor. Is there any danger in stopping fluoxetine and immediately starting the Effexor? I've rad about certain side effects when making the switch from one anti-depressant to another and wanted to know if this switch could trigger the same side effects.
Thanks a lot!
