... have any?
Joanneg; many may also get constipation from time to time but can be delt with it helps to drink some extra water. What you should do if you have not is go to the support group we have and read comments from people that are in the same place you are. At the top of the page in the search bar type the name of the drug and hit enter follow it down until you see the support group and click on that. Just remember you can kind of tell which post you have to take with a grain of salt. I have seen very few people that could not help. And the side effects most go away the headache in 3 to 5 days and the other misc ones in 1 to 2 weeks. All my best to you chuck1957
I have been taking Contrave for a week! I have had nausea on and off, more like a motion sickness and trouble sleeping, waking up 2 hours before I need to. These are the only things I have had. No headaches. Your symptoms should pass as your body adjusts!
By month 3, I still occasionally sweat a lot. For the first time in my life, I am sleeping like a baby. I do have some stomach pains when I don't eat with the pill. Truthfully, a lot of times I am just not hungry at all. I have been trying to take some fiber and eat apples to stay regular. Drinking a lot of water is the best thing for me.
I really only get headaches when I don't eat. Eating a little helps. I can't believe that I am down 25 pounds. I feel like a new person!
I was really worried about the side affects when I started taking contrave about five weeks ago. I have always been sensitive to medications and I am allergic to several. I can happily say that so far the only side affect I have experienced is increased thirst (dry mouth). Hopefully this will be the only one I ever have. Watch out for the headaches because they can also becaused by dehydration. I am currently at 218 (started at 235) and I am loosely following weight watchers.
