Contrave Dosing Regimen

Rockcrk Says:

Once you get to 3 doses and then up to 4 doses a day, are you suppose to spread them apart throughout the day or are you suppose to take multiple doses at a time in the AM and PM?

According to the manufacturers instruction and FDA details, you are supposed to take 2 tablets in the am and 2 in the pm, at the same time. The side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, nervousness, and insomnia.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I started contrave and at 2/day developed metallic breath and worried it was affecting my liver function, toxins coming out of saliva. So I stop it when stinky liver breath occurs and resume it when normal breath returns. I also take the pill now after I hit my calorie limit for the day as it acts as anti-snack appetite suppressant within an hour if ingestion and works strong for next 6-8 hrs and then bedtime. Noticed this really reduced my tolerance as some none/day so a bit nauseous as with my very first pill but with more consistent weight loss as calorie consumption is more consistently reduced.
