I have been taking Contrave for 30 days. I have hurt my back. If I need opiates prescribed then how many days should I be off Contrave before the opiate can be used effectively (and not throw me into precipitated withdrawals)?

It usually takes about 3 days, though it can vary slight from person to person, according FDA reports.

However, taking it too soon with this medication would not throw you into precipitated withdrawals, it would just prevent the opiate from working. Precipitated withdrawals occur when the reverse happens... as in you are taking opiates, then suddenly take Contrave, which blocks opiates.

Is there anything else I can help with?
