Can anyone tell me if they have had true success with this drug? From a food addict stand point? Does it truly take away the pleasure you get from eating?
I just started taking the two drugs. It's been about 4 days. The naltrexone starts working almost immediately. I find myself not thinking about food nearly as much as I used to. I also no longer seem… read more
Can you be prescribed contrave by a mental health Dr ?
Hello Tgail, how are you today?
Can I get addicted
I recommend you have a discussion with your treating professional or your general practitioner.
So wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a appetite suppressant that works, is realitively safe and doesn't cost an arm and leg. Dr prescribed contrave but it is ridiculously expensive.
Which two meds? May I ask?
I have no idea about anything in Canada, however, a burn center is a burn center. The problem, and solutions are universal. So I would think so. Call them and ask, and let us know.
I am brand new to the site here. I'm 32, and I've been heavy all my life. I have arthritis in my knees and have PCOS too. I'm going to my dr on Friday for my annual exam and I'm afraid of the news I'll hear. I have swelling in my legs and some signs of diabetes so I'm afraid that may be an outcome. I'm also planning to talk to her about Contrave. I've taken Contrave before and lost about 20lbs, but it was expensive and I couldn't afford it anymore. I'm in a better position career… read more

First find a doctor who deals with weight loss issues talk to him/her about option for surgery I'm having the same problems.
I don't take it
My doc would never prescribe me that I was just wondering what it was
I eat a meal and like an hour later I feel like I have not eaten in hours. I have also woken up in the middle of the night feeling like I am starving and of course all of this is making me gain a lot of weight. I have just moved and I am in the process of getting a new doctor. Any ideas why I would suddenly feel like this, what I can do, what kind of doctor I should see, tests that should be done. Any help would be so appreciated.
Sorry I didn't realize I had already posted earlier.
