Checking to see if I can take Contrave along with Buspar, Effexor, Metoprolol and Quinapril? I have put on weight and would like to try Contrave if there are no side effects with the above medications.

Hello, Jeanne! How are you?

No, according to FDA Contrave should not be taken with Buspar, since it can increase the risk of your experiencing seizures, and not with the Quinapril, because it can increase the risk of negative effects on your liver/liver damage.

However, if you want to lose weight, there are other options you can discuss with your doctor. Your weight gain could be due to the Effexor, and/or Metoprolol, so it might be solved by simply changing medications.

How much have you gained?

I was on Contrave for about 6 months and I lost 70 lbs. I stopped for unrelated reasons, but I'm looking to go back onto the drug. I'm now taking Lithium, Buspar, Cymbalta, and Vistaril. Can I take Contrave with these drugs?
