I am in my 5 week of taking Contrave and can't get rid of my heart burn. I'm also experiencing hives. I've lost 9 lbs so I know the medicine is working. It's just becoming very uncomfortable with the heart burn.
I have been on Contrave since Oct. 29 and have not experienced hives or heart burn, but so many people react differently to medicines. I recommend you talk to your doctor.
I just started week 3 and I have heartburn too. I think it may be a side effect.
If you're getting hives, you need to call your Dr. You may need to take benadryl with the contrave.
