I was taking only 2 contrave pills in the morning for a couple of months. My last dosage was yesterday which was Monday. I'm having cosmetic surgery in two days which is Thursday. Is it safe to have surgery? I wasn't aware of any dangers with Contrave & surgery. I wasn't on this medication when I initially had my consult. Please help.. I'm worried.

Has your surgeon provided any instructions regarding medications you should not take, before your surgery?

Due to the Naltrexone in Contrave, some pain medications may not work for you, it usually takes about 3 days, after stopping the medication, for them to work, again.

The FDA warns that this medication may cause other side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and anorexia.
