I just started it this morning and my body feels numb and my mind is so slow... sometime I feel I my body is flying... has anyone felt this way?
Oh my yes... The strange feeling I was having didn't go away until about the 5th or 6th week of being on contrave. Once my body got adjusted to the full dose most of the side affects went away except for dry mouth and the bitter taste in my mouth. Bare with it, it does get better. I'm on my 7th week and I finally feel normal again. I experienced every side affect they listed. It does get better. Hang in there and good luck.
Absolutely! I'm nearing the end of week 2 and still have this feeling, just not quite as often. I find that taking in lots of fluid helps, and definitely eat. It seems to hit so randomly, but I try to see it as a positive sign knowing that the medicine is still in my system and when I hit that 'sweet spot' that it will continue to work all day!
