Welcome to Healing America Now

Healing America Now contains most of the resources inherited from CHW. The site is independently managed by a former moderator. If you have any concerns, please contact the CHW Facebook moderators.

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

Here, you will find many documents to support you along whatever Cymbalta / duloxetine-related road you are traveling.

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.

So, if you feel uncomfortable joining even a private group, or have misbehaved and been excluded from a group, the resources here on Healing America Now are still available for you - and everyone - to use.

We can recommend two support groups, which you can find on Facebook. Both have very clear and similar protocols for coming off this drug. Both groups are for people who are planning to come off Cymbalta / duloxetine, are following the group’s recommendations or have completed their taper.

You can look at Cymbalta Hurts Worse , or, if you don't like that group, try Cymbalta Duloxetine Survivors Support Group.

There are other groups which you may find helpful, but please beware! Some offer dangerous suggestions. We ask you to be cautious, research thoroughly for yourself and make your own decisions.

Healing America Now has always been somewhere to keep the CHW group files for easy access. It is becoming outdated and is difficult to edit. We are busy building a new site. (November 2022)

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

CHW Crisis and Safety Planning

This is about suicidal thoughts, imaginings and plans. This is a possible effect of many medications: antidepressants and anticonvulsants. When taking or tapering off Cymbalta / Duloxetine, young and old, we are at risk. This is one reason CHW does not allow promoting or advocating Cymbalta or other drugs.
