Contrave and Suboxone

I started today with my first dose of contrave, 1 pill in the AM. I also take suboxone 8mg (4 1 time a day). My doctor stated that the interaction of the two should be minimal..yeah NO! I got diarrhea, hot flashes, chills, body aches, and pretty much every withdrawal symptom known to man. I now dont want to take the contrave because I am not ready to stop the suboxone. Should I just stop the contrave and continue the sub? Or how should I go about this? ## Hello, Kiat! How are you? I'm very sorry about what happened. Yes, the Naltrexone in Contrave can cause you to go into withdrawal from any opiate, as listed by the FDA, and you were doubling it up with the Naloxone in the Suboxone that does that same thing. As to how to continue, it usually takes about 3 days, before you can safely...

Ketogenic diet with Contrave

I am just starting Contrave but have been on a keto diet for the last few months & feel good on it, but nothing for weight loss. Has anyone had any experience with Keto & Contrave? I know one of the warnings is not to take it with a fatty meal, but is it ok to have high fat in between doses? ## From what I've been reading it is best, overall, to stick with a low-fat diet while taking Contrave, the reason for this is due to the fact that a high fat content can actually cause your body to absorb more of the active ingredients than you should, which may lead to problems, such as more severe side effects, and possibly an overdose. Ref: Contrave Details Other common side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Are you on any other medications?

Pill saturn imprint white round

I found two white, round pills on the floor while cleaning my place. I'm renting so maybe they were left behind? On one side is what looks like the planet Saturn, and the other side is scored down the middle. I have no idea what they are and can't find any information about them. Anyone have any idea what these are? I'm scared there may be more and I don't want my dog eating them because I have absolutely no idea what kind of pill this is. ## Hi Alice, There seem to be a few suspects with similar pill descriptions that offer clues as to what yours might be (based on having a saturn-like imprint)... Perhaps the following list can generate some new leads on further search efforts: "XTC" Hydroxycut (by iovate) Tamoxifen / Nolvadex (by AstraZeneca) Anapolon / Oxymeth...

Mounjaro itchy red welt at injection site

I’m in my second month taking Mounjaro for weight loss. I am in the first month on the .5 dosage. On week 2 I noticed an extremely itchy red welt at the injection site on my stomach. Week 3’s site is the same. Is anyone else experiencing this? Should I be concerned? I have no other side effects. ## Hello, Cindy! How are you? You should have youf doctor check it out, to be safe, because if you are having an allergic reaction, it could get worse with time, and repeated exposure. Most administration site reactions are benign, so it may not be anything to worry about, but it never hurts to be sure. The FDA lists other side effects of Mounjaro as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, appetite loss, and abdominal pain. Ref: Mounjaro Information ## Good afternoon. Let me ...

Phentermine anyone have strange side effects?

I just started taking this medicine for weight loss. I am having hot flashes and cold chills, terrible headache and a tingly head. I feel awful. Has anybody taken this and had the same reaction? If so did it pass after a few days? Gotta say this...I am not ever hungry! Like to hear from anyone that has taken this med. Thanks :) ## hi jen! I have also been taking phentermine for about 2 months now, and yes, the medicine can be great, but the side effects aren't always pretty. when i first started taking them, i had a headache, was super thirsty, and felt like i could crawl out of my skin!

Where to buy Acxion Fentermina

Can anyone give me the name of a clinic where I can get prescribed Acxion Fentermina? I have heard good things about this medication for weight loss but am not sure if there are nutritionists in my area that are able to prescribe it. ## You purchase them on bst? after a 2 yr struggle trying hard to lose the weight, I finally ordered acxion. I would have to admit, Its the sure thing, because I've tried them ALL. You are supposed to take one every morning upon waking up for 3 months.

Contrave not working anymore

I took Contrave and lost 52 pounds in 10 months, which has put me back to my ideal body weight. The problem is that it has not been working after that 10 months. I don’t have any side effects, but have a ridiculous appetite now. Almost to the point of wanting to binge eat. Anybody else been on it a while and have it stop working? I’ve gained almost 10 pounds back in the last few months. I’m not sure whether to ask my doctor about stopping it, but I’m afraid my appetite will be even worse. Anybody? ## I had the same problem. I was starving hungry and wanted to eat and eat. Weirdest thing was that I felt constantly hungry even after a week? ## You are not the only people who have experienced such issues. Most people who have tried it have reported eventually hittin...

Contrave swelling

Has anyone else had problems with severe water retention after taking Contrave? Mine started day two. I already take a mild water pill but it hasn't touched the swelling. I do not have ankles any longer, they are now "cankles". ## Hello, Janie! How are you? Yes, though it is rare, the Bupropion in Contrave has been known to cause edema in some people that take it.

Does Contrave make anyone else's hands shake?

I'm on my 4th week (2 pills each am & pm) of Contrave and I find my hands shaking when i'm holding something and my heart rate is way up. Anyone else go through this? Also, is it safe to stop Contrave all at once or should you gradually go down the same as it was started. ## Yes.. I have been on Contrave for about 5 months and I actually had a different symptom…I was having Phantosmia (Phantom Smells) like I smell smoke when there is none. It has been bothersome… but then I also started feeling shaky and even noticed a true tremor in my right ring finger. I started freaking out because I looked all over the Contrave sight and didn't see this as a side effect. If you look up those two symptoms its points to brain tumor or Parkinsons! I went to my Doc who presc...

contrave and sleepiness

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...

Itching from Contrave

I have been taking Contrave for three weeks and have developed itching on the insides of my hands and the bottoms of my feet. Has anyone else experienced this? ## Hello, Arlie! How are you? Do you have a rash, or just the itching? Contrave has been known to cause a rash as a side effect, as listed by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and insomnia.

Lipozene side effects, contraindications and drug interactions

It was seen on tv to help get rid of belly fat and I was wondering what the side effects of this drug are? ## I am looking for success (or failure) stories from people who have tried Lipozene to lose weight. ## On Lorsartan, Bystolic & Amlodipine Besylate - also Crestor & Zetia - can I take Lipozene without any problems? ## Can I take lipozene with benazipril for my high blood pressure ## Lipozene is a supplement that is manufactured by Obesity Research Institute, according to the product website.

Contrave: Dose time/Stomach ache

I've been taking contrave for 3 weeks now and certainly have a decreased appetite. I'm having issues with constipation and a stomach ache in the middle of the night tho. What time is the second dose recommended? Perhaps evening rather than close to bedtime? I also get very tired after lunch and am wondering if changing my diet would help? Any suggestions? Finally, I used to have a few glasses of wine on the weekends and have a cigarette or two (yes I'm one of those smokers). However, I've lost both a taste for wine and definitely smoking since the first week. That can only be a good thing. Please share your thoughts. ## The listed FDA directions only say it should be taken in the evening, so I think adjusting it should be fine, unless your doctor has told you not to do s...

qysmia pills for weight loss

pink square pill with dp on both sides

What is a pink square pill with the letters DP on both sides ## What is a pink square pill with DP on both sides. I think DP stands for Dragon PHARMACEUTICAL. BUT I DON'T NO WHAT THE PILL IS. ## I've seen steroid description that look similar to this, in that they are often described as square pills with two letter imprints such as BP or DP on them. In this case, Dragon Pharmaceuticals does produce steroids, which only adds to my hunch on what it might be. I would encourage you to contact this company directly just to be on the safe side. They do have a webpage where you can write to them if you google their name. Their Dianabol in particular appears to have pink packaging (a clue perhaps?), while the other steroid packages are shown in a variety of different colors. I hope this...

Phentermine and bad side effects

Since I started phentermine a week and a half ago I can tell that even my sweat pants are looser in my belly. I have had sadness/mood change that's began 5 days after and extreme exhaustion as well as extreme neck/back/shoulder stiffness/pain. Also 3 nights earlier this week while lying in bed I went to speak back at a voice that wasn't there and waved at someone that wasn't there! Haha kinda funny but a lil unnerving. Feels like my nerve endings are tingling all over my body. And cold feeling toes...I'm starting to think it's the med, lol, but hope there will be enough help in weight loss to outweigh the bad... I'm 5' 3" and started at 180... Don't know what I am now as I haven't weighed myself recently. Anyone else have similar experiences? ## T...
