Policies and rules

Cymbalta Hurts Worse is a support group for members who are planning to come off Cymbalta / Duloxetine, are already following the group’s recommendations or have already completed their taper.

If you don't like that group, try Cymbalta Duloxetine Survivors Support Group, which you can find on Facebook.

Since Healing America Now came online in 2020, it has been little more than somewhere to keep the group files for easy access. It is becoming outdated and is difficult to edit. We are busy building a new site.

Healing America Now contains all the resources inherited from CHW. The hosting is independently managed by a former moderator who is not a member of CHW. If you have any concerns, please contact the CHW Facebook group.

We are working hard to make access easier for you. We want you to browse the resources and make decisions for yourself more easily.

If you have gone cold turkey, followed advice to drop too quickly or every other day, are in withdrawal, you need a safe place. Somewhere you know you are not alone, where your distress is recognised, understood and validated.

Many find a Facebook group too confusing to handle. Comments come from all sides. Some are deleted; whole threads disappear. With so many members and such strict rules from Facebook, that is inevitable.

You will find many documents on this website to support you along whatever Cymbalta-related road you are traveling.

If you are not already a member of CHW, please do join, then make a new post if you need more information. If you feel uncomfortable joining even a private group, or have misbehaved and been excluded from CHW, we are sorry. However, the resources here on Healing America Now are still available for you to use.

CHW Bipolar Alternatives to Drugs

Bipolar is purely subjective.

CHW Tapering Off Multiple Drugs

There are three schools of thought on tapering multiple drugs: 1) Taper one drug at a time in order to connect decreases to withdrawal symptoms.2) Taper all at once – very slowly 3) The stair-step method, where one drug is slow tapered for awhile, and then tapering that drug is stopped before tapering the next drug begins.
