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...

Adipex in Michigan
Post a Reply
Will any doctors prescribe the adipex longer than 3 months time in Michigan? I have read that in some states doctors will only prescribe for 90 days and then just cut you off. Is this true for Michigan or is it more related to the particular doctor who is prescribing the medication? Thank you kindly for any feedback!!

Contrave and alcohol consumption
24 Replies RSS
I have filled my prescription of Contrive but have not yet started taking it. I read all the possible side effects and am weary about taking in and wanting to continue to socially drink (glass of wine, socially drink on weekends) ## @pnj, According to umm.edu's drug interaction checker, there ARE potentially dangerous interactions between Contrave and Alcohol. These statements go on to note the following: Consuming alcohol with Bupropion (one of the active ingredients in Contrave) may lead to an increased risk of seizures, decreased tolerance to alcohol, muscle spasms, confusion, and changes in cognitive awareness. For those reasons mentioned above, I would not encourage anyone to take the two together or even within the same day. Hope this helps! ## OK, I read the notice about alco...

Contrave and High Fat Foods
15 Replies RSS
I ate a high fat meal (stuffed baked potato) tonight and am wondering when it is safe to take my evening dose of Contrave. All the warnings say is do not take with a high fat meal. Well, how long do you have to wait? There is no information on that! Has anyone heard? ## Hello, MrsMeck! How are you? Have you tried asking your doctor? Unfortunately, I'm only finding the same thing you are, not to take it with a high fat meal, but no specific time frame. Taking it with a high fat meal creates the risk of seizures. Other typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness and anorexia. Does anyone know more? ## I spoke to a consultant at Takeda today and they recommended that I call my dr. But the problem would be that the doctor wou...

Killer Headaches
Post a Reply
I'm on Contrave almost 3 mos and lost 29 lbs...that's the great part, but lately I am getting the worst headaches, usually over one eye . Lately I've been getting 3 headaches a week and all I could do is lay in bed. Sometimes ice on my head feels better or even the pressure from the pillow being on my head to block out the light helps. I went to my prescribing doctor and she said headaches are a side effect. Other than a headaches my only other side effect is dry mouth. My doctor said the headache should go away as this does happen to a few patients on this meds. Advil migraine doesn't seem to help so I really don't know what else I could take with contrave. If I wasn't on contrave this kind of headache would definitely be gone with a Vicodin! But I know I cannot ta

I need to know how to stop taking contrave. Can I just quit cold turkey or do I wean off? If I wean off how do I do it? ## Hello, Janice! How are you? How long have you been taking it? Why do you want to stop it? The FDA lists Contrave as being used to aid in weight loss and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, nervousness, insomnia and anorexia. Have you consulted your doctor? It does require slow tapering for some people. ## I was looking up how to wean myself off of Contrave and found this comment on here. I've been taking Confrave for about a month or so. I just started the 2 pills in the morning and 2 pills at night dose Sunday (today is Friday). I've felt horrible all week since increasing it. Hot flashes in my face, horrible nausea, glands some...

Contrave Permanently Affected Palate
1 Reply RSS
I tried Contrave approx. 3 months ago for one week. I experienced terrible side effects; extreme nausea, inability to eat anything other than saltine crackers, terrible dry mouth. I couldn't keep anything down for over a week after stopping. Now that I am off, it is like my taste buds have totally changed. I used to love chicken, fish, steak - now I eat only a few bites before I am completely turned off by it. I cannot even smell tuna without my stomach turning (something I used to eat before without issue.) Unfortunately, I still like bread and pasta as much as I always have - it would have been nice to hate those too. I feel like I am turning into a vegetarian. Has anyone else that has taken the drug noticed a change in their palate? I want to know if it will ever go away. ## I to...
