... already lost a total of 34 lbs. I was 238 lbs starting out with qsymia in June of this year and I just recentely hit a plateau. My Dr has me on the 7.59 mg and doesn't want to move me up to a higher dosage so instead he suggested to take the contrave. I was just concerned with switching how this might effect me. Then I also thought about once this months worth of pills are gone to just stop and try to lose the rest of the weight on my own, but then again I am afraid to gain my weight back that I already lost. I mean it is only 30 more lbs and I am young, active, and healthy with no medical problems. Any suggestions? It would help please
