I am on my second month of contract and have gained 7 pounds. I lost 65 pounds 6 years ago drug free, and maintained the loss. I got the contrave to get a push and loose 10 more. I usually eat 80% clean, only 1 soda a day. Since taking this drug, I am hungry all the time and crave fried, carbs and all else that is forbidden. I just realized I now drink 3-4 sodas a day. It truly has had the exact opposite effect that it is supposed to have. My ears ring constantly as well. I am going to wean myself off so I get back on track!

Hello, Linda! How are you doing? I am sorry about the problem you've experienced.

Unfortunately, there is always a very small percentage of people that experience the opposite of the desired effect of any given medication. There's no explanation as to why, but it is a proven phenomenon that is documented by both the FDA and the NIH.

Where others experience nervousness and insomnia as other side effects, you may find yourself experience lethargy, somnolence and drowsiness.

Has this happened to anyone else?
