I was prescribed Contrave last week, I took a dose on Thursday after eating 3 boiled eggs for the protein, and drank a bottle of water. All was well until about 9:30 am, I wasn't nauseous, but felt like I was so seasick I has to go home. I never go home! I took a nausea pill and slept for 4 hours got up, felt hungover, went to bed at 8 pm and slept 10 hours and still felt cruddy. I didn't take that dose and haven't since, because it freaked me out. I have to be able to function at work. My dilemma is I don't want to waste the $99 plus office visit I forked out and i am sick of being 212 pounds. Has anyone taken it at night instead of morning the first week and were you overly tired, too?
I took it every night the first nine days. The vertigo was horrible it started immediately after taking the pill and it lasted all through the next day. I have had to stop taking it. The vertigo is dangerous and I lose my balance.
