Severe Side Effects And Wanting To Stop Taking It

Tricia Says:

I have been on Contrave for 4 weeks now. The previous weeks I had no side effects. Now all of a sudden I have severe nausea, headache, heart racing, dizziness and insomnia. I do not want to continue taking it and I am afraid to stop cold turkey but hate to continue to feel like I do. I had to leave work yesterday because I got so sick. What do you suggest?

Hello, Tricia! How are you doing? Did you stop taking it?

Those are all listed by the FDA as possible side effects of Contrave, along with irritability, nervousness and anorexia.

Have you consulted your doctor?

Most side effects go away after a month, or so, once your body gets used to the medication, but this might not be the right one for you to take.

How do I stop taking Contrave? I have been taking it for 4 weeks and have lost 7.5 lbs. I just don't like the way I feel. My ears have a humming sound when I try to go to sleep. I'm nausea and have head aches. Please give advice.
