contrave / rash

what does the rash that a person might get while on this med look like? ## It depends on why they are getting the rash. If it's a side effect rash, it usually just looks like a systemic rash that covers a large portion of the body, but it isn't itchy and doesn't include hives. However, an allergic rash will usually be itchy and cause hives. The FDA lists the other typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, insomnia, nervousness and anorexia. Have you consulted your doctor? They should be able to let you know what has caused the rash. ## I have been on Contrave for 2 weeks. I didn't have any side effects until I started taking 2 pills a day. Now I am breaking out in bumps under my arms, under my belly, my back and on the inside of my ...

Plateau after losing 38 lbs

I've been on it since last July and have lost 38 lbs, but I hit a plateau about a month ago. I am trying to limit calories and walking 3 miles a day. I just seem to be getting very hungry in the evening again. Am I immune to the contrave now? It is costing me $60 dollars a month now. My insurance doesn't pay for it. ## Hello, Cheryl! How are you? Has there been any change? You're not likely resistant to it, already, most people taking it have reported hitting a plateau period for anywhere from a few weeks to a month, before it started working for them, again. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, insomnia, nervousness and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The same thing is happening to me it's coming up on a ye...

neobes & esbelcaps awesome!!

Both diet pills are amazing.. I took them 7 yrs ago n lost about 50-60lbs in 6mths size 16-18 down to a 7-8. Then got pregnant n having trouble to loose the weight so i just started them may 10 and have lost 12lb so far which is not so bad. I have no side effects but very thirsty and dont feel hungry which is what i needed. There is a Dr. Across the border that prescribes them in reynosa called Dr.Manuel Felix hernandez Lee. They are awesome!! And look forward to more weight loss. Take neobes around 8am and esbelcaps at 2pm plus a basic diet n 30min of exercise/walking for additional weight loss..always keep ur prescription an ask Dr for a note noting that u are under Dr supervision because if they have you do a random drug panel u will come back positive for a fact. ## Hello Weightloss...

what can you take with the insomnia when taking contrave

I just start taking Contrave. I am on day 5 with one pill in the morning and haven't been sleeping much at all. Scared to take two pills a day. Any suggestions on what will help? Don't want to stop taking it because I can tell my cravings are more controlled. I already take a Melatonin a night. I also drank some sleepy time tea last night. Will this go away? ## Hi Ann, Sorry to hear about your challenges with insomnia. According to, a "sudden increase in energy, racing thoughts or trouble sleeping" is listed as a side effect of Bupropion (one of the active ingredients in Contrave). Source: They also list, "trouble sleeping or a big increase in energy" as a side effect of Naltrexone (the other active ingredient in ...

light and dark green capsule SA imprint

My friend received some capsules that are a light green on one side and dark green on the other side. SA is printed on both sides. There is a powder inside it. She was told they are phentermine but we cannot identify it anywhere. Has anyone seen these pills, and know what they really are? ## Hi Abbi, Did your friend acquire these pills from a licensed pharmacy (through a valid prescription) or were these obtained through some other means? I only ask because phentermine is something that may be increasingly counterfeited due to high demand for effective weight loss medications. But if it was filled at a real pharmacy and the pharmacist told her it was phentermine (she should also have a prescription bottle with a label on it saying what it is) then there's really no reason to questio...

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...

contrave and cymbalta

On day two of Contrave but also on 30mg of cymbalta. My doctor didn't seem to have any worries on both together. Has anyone been on both. I actually skipped my cymbalta for last nights dose because I want off of cymbalta. I have been on 30mg since last November. Any personal experiences?? ## Hello, Erica! How are you? They can increase the toxicity of each other, as well as increasing the risk of seizures, when they are combined, according to the FDA. Thus, they should not normally be prescribed together and it is advised that this only be done as a last resort, when someone is out of other options. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am wondering the same thing. I am also on cymbalta fornthe past month and a half and now i started contrave a week ago. Everything i read say...

Diet pills made from algae and seaweed

A few years ago I found a diet pill called Qick Loweight. It was made from algae and seaweed and other things from the sea. There was no caffeine of any kind but it worked great. I lost 3 pant sizes in 2 weeks. If anyone knows where I can find this please let me know.

Square green pill with dp on both sides

I have a green square pill with "dp" on both sides. If broken in half, the center is white. Anyone know what these are? ## Based on other related threads here, I think the "dp" stands for Dragon Pharmaceuticals - A company that produces steroids. There are other depictions on MedsChat of square (blue, red, orange, pink, etc) pills marked with "dp" that seem to be from this manufacturer. However, I'm not having any luck finding specific details on a green version. The red square pill with dp is reportedly Anavar (Oxandrolone) 20 mg, so I imagine we're on the right track... Does anyone else recognize this pill? ## It is 50mg oxymetholone (anadrol), produced by dragon pharmaceuticals.

Side effects of Contrave

I'm on my third day. Today I have a severe headache. But my question is this, has anyone had bad diarrhea? I get cramps, then bam. But I was feeling better by night. Today is the worst. Should I continue or stop? ## Hello, Shercon! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the way you're feeling. Those can be normal side effects of Contrave and it may take about a month for them to wear off, as your body gets used to the medication. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include dry mouth, dizziness and nausea. Have you consulted your doctor? Unless they feel there is some reason to be concerned, you should most likely continue taking it. ## Verwon -- are you taking Contrave? ## I'm on Contrave and the stomach discomfort wore off, very mild headache left to...

Adipex-friendly doctors in Detroit

In search of recommendations for a doctor/weight loss clinic in the Detroit area that will prescribe Adipex (phentermine) to an overweight but otherwise healthy me. Inquired with my family doctor a few times only to have my interest brushed off. ## I just got mine from Dr. Bouier on greenfield and 9mile. I lost 7. lbs in two effin days. 2 EFFIN DAYS! My combo is phentermine 37.5 and wellbutrin. ## How much was your Adipex and do you have to be a patient to get a prescription? ## How much was your visit and how much was the adipex? ## What about Kalamazoo, Mi or near there, do you know of any? I was talking to an employee of DrToHelp and not sure I want to take a chance with them, especially giving them my credit card account info.

Contrave and tramadol

My doctor believes there will not be a problem using these 2 together; perhaps it just diminished ultram's effect only. Has anyone ever taken the two together and can assure me that might be the only effect? ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? The Bupropion in the Contrave can increase the effect of Tramadol, while the Naltrexone can decrease it, but those are the only issues listed by the FDA between these medications. The FDA classifies Tramadol as an opioid and warns that it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Contrave may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, nervousness and anorexia. Can anyone that's taken them together chime in with their experience? ## Thank you sooo much...

small round pink pill labelled phentermine

The label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many databases but most phentermine pills are white and blue. Can anyone help me identify this pill? ## 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 wa...

Phentermine not working

I have taken phentermine several times and always had great results. I was prescribed phentermine 37.5 mg a few weeks ago and it doesn’t seem to be working. It has absolutely no effect on me. I still have an appetite, no increase in energy and haven’t lost any weight. I cannot seem to figure out what is going on this time and why it’s not working but it’s driving me insane and I have major anxiety over why it’s not working. Anyone have an experience like this? ## Is this prescription phentermine or the knock offs found on the Internet ? ## It is prescription. I have also gotten the same prescription from the same pharmacy before. ## Hello Riggsbo, According to the National Institute of Health phentermine should only assist in depressing your appetite and wi...

I've taken Contrave for a week, Can I stop taking it with? Well there be any side effects from stopping with out gradually ? ## Hello, Maria! How are you? No, there shouldn't be any problems after such a short period of time, but you should check with your doctor to be certain. Why are you stopping it, already?

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. Are you on any other medications? The itching could be due to a circulation problem. ## No rash. No other meds.
