Contrave And Beer

darla Says:


I have been taking Contrave for 6 days, so 1 pill in the morning with a small meal. We are going floating today and plan on having a few beers so I chose not to take my Contrave today. It will be 29 hours between my last Contrave and first beer. Do you think that’ll be ok?

Do not drink a lot of alcohol while taking CONTRAVE. If you drink a lot of alcohol, talk with your healthcare provider before suddenly stopping. If you suddenly stop drinking alcohol, you may increase your chance of having a seizure. What are the possible side effects of CONTRAVE?

It is always best to refrain from imbibing, when taking medications, but if you are going to enjoy a couple of drinks with your doctor's approval, anyway, remember to keep it in moderation.

Combining alcohol with Contrave could result in worse side effects than usual, which may include nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and drowsiness, so please be sure you won't be driving.

Is there anything I can help with?
