Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated and supervised fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight. In other words, it is conscious control or restriction of the diet. A restricted diet is often used by those who are overweight or obese, sometimes in combination with physical exercise, to reduce body weight. Some people follow a diet to gain weight (usually in the form of muscle). Diets can also be used to maintain a stable body weight and improve health. In particula...

Contrave / ringing in ears
20 Replies RSS
Has anyone suffered from ringing in ears from Contrave? I'm going insane :(. but losing weight :) ## Hello, Jojo! How are you? Yes, tinnitus is among the possible side effects that are listed by the FDA. Other symptoms you may experience could possibly include nausea, dizziness, constipation, headache, upper abdominal pain, irritability, rash and muscle strains. How long have you been taking it? Most side effects are transient and will taper off in severity as your body gets used to the medication and will go away entirely after about 4 to 6 weeks. ## yes - please beware this was one of the most horrible experiences of my life...I started contrave - was on it for about a month and started experiencing ringing in my became so loud that I couldn't even hear...I immediate...

Where Should I Buy Dinintel Pills (the weight loss tablet)
23 Replies RSS
I tried dinintel before its very effective. I want to buy them again. I wanted to know where can i buy them over the counter? ## which country still has dinintel over the counter? ## is Dinintal available in South Africa or under another name, or generic?? ## Dinintel contains the active ingredient Clobenzorex, it is a stimulant used as an appetite suppressant to help aid in weight loss. As to purchasing it, I think it really depends on what country are you in. In the U.S. it is available by prescription only, but I am not certain about other countries. It should only be used under a doctor's supervision, because it can cause serious side effects, such as nausea, dizziness and anorexia. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Dinintel Details I hope this info helps! ## I ...

Has anyone ever noticed a bad odor with Contrave?
3 Replies RSS
I have been taking Contrave for a couple of months now and this last bottle's tablets smell terrible. None of the other bottles have smelled like this. Also, it seems that the smell is getting worse as time goes on. Btw, the expiration date is late 2017. ## Hello, Susan! How are you? Yes, other people have commented about this, as well and many medications do have funny odors, or a bad taste, it's just that they are often coated to keep people from noticing. It makes me wonder if the coating has been thinner on some batches. Did you pick it up from the same pharmacy as before? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, anorexia, nervousness, and insomnia. ## Yes, always the same pharmacy. I wondered if maybe it was an indication of losing eff...

Not yet adjusting to Contrave
34 Replies RSS
Into my second month on contrave. I have experienced every side effect. Irritable, ringing ears, vomiting, lack of libido ect..ect. I have lost weight but at a high price. I hope hope hope my body will adjust to this torture. ## You should try Belviq, it has a much friendlier side effect profile ## @Jojo, I'm not sure how long it's supposed to take for your body to adjust to the effects of Contrave, but after two months of it not working as expected I'd be hard pressed to expect anything different out of it. That's just me though. I realize some medications such as birth control can also take a long time to become fully effective as well; and if that is the case with Contrave this may just be an extended waiting game. However, on the other hand - if the side effects aren...

Contrave vs Belviq
46 Replies RSS
I was on free 2 weeks of Belviq followed by 1 mo out of pocket Belviq. Lost and felt good with NO side effects at all. Then my doctor said she thought Contrave would be a better choice because it is just as effective, if not more, and cheaper...just 70 dollars a month. But, I have heart racing and feel agitated. I did not experience either with Belviq. I feel like calling my Dr. Back and asking to switch back and suck up the 200 mo. For Belviq. ## Hello, Jewels! How are you? Are you certain that Contrave is the correct name of the medication? Because it is listed by the FDA as containing Naltrexone and Buprenorphine, which is used to treat drug addiction, it is not used for weight loss. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects,...

Switching from Wellbutrin XL to Contrave?
2 Replies RSS
Hi - I am switching from Wellbutrin XL 300 mg/day (brand) to Contrave. I do not have the Rx yet but wanted to ask in advance - will I still need to do the taper up to the full dosage of Contrave since I have already been on Wellbutrin XL 300 mg for a long time? Or could I start at the full dosage of Contrave since the amounts in a full days dosage (4 pills) is comparable to a days worth of Wellbutrin. As I understand it the main side effects are a result of the bupropion and not the second part of the combination and this is why they start you out slowly and then increase dosage gradually. Please let me know if you have any ideas! I try to be as informed as I can when I go to my PCP. ## Hi Leann, My theory is that because Contrave and Wellbutrin both contain bupropion, you should be abl...

contrave and sleepiness
15 Replies RSS
I started contrave 4 days ago, today being my 5th dose. every day, i take the pill about 8am and by 9:30-10am I am so sleepy I can't stand it. Days 1 and 2 I managed to fight it off until about 12-12:30, day 3 until about 1-1:30, and day 4 I fought it off until 3pm. If I take a 1-2 hour nap, I wake up fine, with energy and then cannot get to sleep until about 2am, sometimes 3am. Today is day 5, I'm having that "drunk" feeling and sleepy, but no where near how it has been. It seems this effect is slowly wearing off, but I haven't seen anywhere where this is a common side effect. I know all medications effect everyone differently, so I'm wondering if this is something I should be concerned about, or just another side effect that I will get used to as the weeks go o...
