contrave and sleepiness
62 Replies RSS Share
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...

Contrave and Vomiting
12 Replies RSS Share
I have been on Contrave for 3 months. I have battled nausea all along, hoping it would go away. I've lost 15 pounds. The pill seems to make everything taste bad. Coffee, spicy food, even just scrambled eggs taste bitter and gritty. I didn't have any other side effect. This past week, the nausea has moved on to vomiting. I've used Tumms and Dramamine as well as a prescription anti nausea med on and off for all three months. I truly feel poisoned. I feel ridiculous that I have used this knowingly for 3 months and endured feeling sick. I've spent a lot of money and feel terrible even a week after stopping the drug. Please don't take this. I feel that fairly soon enough folks will complain enough to take it off of the market. ## I dont feel that it should be taken off th...

Contrave and Suboxone
44 Replies RSS Share
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...

the label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many websites but most phentermine pills are white and blue. can anyone help me identify this pil? ## Are there any markings on the tablet? If there aren't, it is going to be impossible to positively identify it. There are just far too many possibilities. It could be an over the counter item or a supplement. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. ## There are no details on the pill but I do know it is an appetite suppressent and the bottle said phentermine ## My friend has just come back from a slimwise clinic she has been given some round pink pills and there are no markings but have phentermine on the front ## hi i am taking the same pills small round pink tablets with no markings but was ...

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! I now only get an occasional headache and still deal with the insomnia. what dosage are you on? maybe you should start small, say 18 mg and then move on to 30 when that doesn't work anymore, the...

Appetite returned after 6 weeks of use
1 Reply RSS Share
The first 5 weeks taking contrave I had no appetite. I dropped 24lbs in the first month and was only taking 1 pill twice a day. I just recently got a refill and it's not doing anything to decrease my appetite anymore. I upped to 3 pills a day still not working like it did the first month. Has anyone else have this same experience? If I keep taking it will it eventually decrease my appetite like before? ## This has happened to me and am looking for answers to this app can’t question. I am wondering if I got to complacent because the first few weeks seemed so easy.

jevity shelf life expired. can we use?
5 Replies RSS Share
We recently were given 6 cases of Jevity 1.5 cal. The expiration date reads 1SEP07. My husband vomited immediately after feeding through the tube in his stomach. Shouldn't Jevity still be ok to use after 5 months shelf-life? ## Can I use calcium tablets MFD: 04/2007 EXP: 03/2009 ## If you need help with drugs please ask God for healing just say out loud now Jesus I believe and I accept you in my heart please heal me and free my mind and turn me into your helper. I know this will help you. ## On the Jevity, I am sorry,. I don't know, however, since it is a product for nutrition, I would suggest it is probably NOT a good idea to use past the expiration date. Ramnarine, they don't get dangerous past the expiration, but will slowly lose some of their potency. Are there any other...

wanting to quit taking contrave

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...

weight loss pill ## how do you take these pills and what r they for. ## WELL THIS IS A DIET PILL THAT WAS TAKING OF THE MARKET IN TH U.S. BACK IN 1989 FOR THE REASON THAT IT WAS HURTING EITHER UR LUNGS ECT. IT HAS A LAXITIVE IN IT AND WAS KNOWN TO HELP YOU LOSE UP TO 6 LBS A WEEK,WAS RX FOR THE OVER WEIGHT PEOPLE(OB) ## This drug, however, is still available in Mexico, as well as several other countries, so unfortunately, those who self-medicate, for whatever reason they are doing so, can pick it up there very cheaply. In most cases, you can get away with carrying small amounts, around 3 months worth or less, of a drug into the US, without having it seized or questioned by customs. Customs agents are not trained to keep track of which drugs are or are not legal in the US, and if someone...

Stop contrave

I have been on this for about a month. I was only taking 3 a day. I didn't feel comfortable taking 4. So my Dr said that was fine. Then Friday night I felt done swelling in my throat, but that subsided after a couple hours. I went to bed, got up to go to bathroom and my legs felt really heavy. So I laid back down and in about 5 minutes later got up, same thing. I also started feeling very nauseous. Thought maybe I was coming down with the flu. Never got sick, just felt bad. Finally was able to sleep. Still feeling bad the next morning. Decided to take only 1 the next morning. Decided to check my bp at Dillons. I know they are not real accurate, but give me an idea. My bp was 150/89. Went to minor med. They checked it, it was 130/90. So a little high. I am on bp meds. Didn't take...

Have been prescribed Contrave but can stand pain but don't do nausea very well ## Hello, Clipscomb! How are you? It is a possible side effect, along with dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia and anorexia, as listed by the FDA. How have you reacted to other medications? Do you usually experience nausea? ## I’ve never tried it! I’d love anything to get rid of nausea! I’ve been trying Emend which works well, but costs $20 for 3 pills!

Anyway to reboot weight loss?

I've been on this for about 2yrs now. I have lost 40 lbs and pretty much kept it off for that time. The last 5-6 months weight is creeping up. I know I am having trouble choosing healthy foods. The first year and a half I really had no desire to eat, let alone overeat. Has it completely stopped working? If so is there anyway to reboot so to speak? I really want it to keep working. ## what med are you taking that you feel you need a reboot so to speak ? ## Contrave is the weight loss med I have been using. ## Ok, I was not seeing what you were taking. Not familiar with this med sorry. Hope someone can help you. I do think with women we lose a lot of weight at first, then it tapers.

Anyone prescribed, Contrave as well as Phentermine & Belviq at once?
16 Replies RSS Share
I began taking Phetermine in October of '14, weighing in at 272 big ones! Yikes! I had weight loss--but in December my doctor suggested we pair the Phen with Contrave. He said it would help in the evening when I usually like my snacks. My weight loss was minimal but still there. By Feb. '15, I'm down 55lbs, but again weight loss was moving slower. So my doctor wants me to add Belviq. I've been taking all three and so far no major side effects. Just thirsty for water. I feel like contrave is supposed to be this miracle drug, but I don't feel like it does anything. Am I the only one being prescribed all these at the same time? Side note, I just has full blood work completed to make sure none of my organs are shutting down from this. Since day 1, I've eaten better a...

Side Effects Of Dinintel 30mg
14 Replies RSS Share
I just want to know the side effects of dinintel 30mg. I'm taking it because I want to lose 40lb by july. ## From what I could gather on this drug, Dinintel (Clobenzorex) has been banned in many countries due to it's potentially dangerous side effects and abuse in the sports world. "It can reduce fatigue and increase attention providing athletes with an unfair advantage. Yet these “benefits†are not without their negative side effects. Clobenzorex may be partly to blame for at least one athlete’s death." "As far as its weight loss benefits, this potent product may provide some substantive appetite control. Yet, in view of the negative side effects of this substance it is hard to be excited about any of its benefits. Cl...
