This drug feels so strong that I can't imagine increasing it.
I have been taking contrave since July 27th and have been doing very very well. I find that I have to make myself eat. I no longer have food cravings which is something I have never had! I am 57.
I use myfitnesspal application to keep track of my calories. I found myself not eating enough which made my body think I was starving myself and holding onto my fat.
I have been taking Contrave since June. I have been on a full dose since July. It was hard at first to get used to the dosage. I was sleepy and dizzy at times. But, now I am at the full dose and appreciate the effect it has on me. I am able to eat well and have lost weight. I do not obsess about food. I would recommend that you continue it. Hope this helps!
