No Longer Working

rryanhorn Says:

I have been on this medication since March and have lost about 20 pounds. However, in the last month I have not only lost nothing but am gaining slightly and I no longer feel the effects of not wanting to eat. Is it possible to modify the dose to again feel the loss of wanting to eat? Has anyone else experienced this?

Actually, it is very common for people taking such medications to hit a plateau phase for a month or so. Most patients have reported it, but once past that, the weight loss usually starts back up.

After a certain period of time, which can vary from person to person, your body adjusts to the medication and basically starts to try to fight it to maintain itself. Most people have found that they've eventually lost weight, again, by just staying the course, but it's always best to double check with your doctor to be sure.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Contrave as possibly including nausea, dizziness, insomnia, nervousness and dry mouth.

Are you also watching your diet and exercising?

Yes.....until this past week. I got so discouraged that I am not as rigid. But if this will work again will too....just hope I do not have to go yet another month.
