Today was my third day of week 1 on Contrave. I haven't had any side effects other than maybe a tiny bit of brain fog on day 1. I'm wondering if I can increase my dosage now or if I really should wait it out? I've noticed the slightest decrease in my appetite. I still get hungry but I seem to eat moderately less. It's not enough to be obvious but I can tell if I stop to think about it. Cravings haven't changed.
Do not self medicate follow your Dr.´s instructions as well as the ones on the label.
From the literature of Drugs.com (same as I mentioned):
"Take Contrave exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablet. Swallow it whole. Do not take more than 2 tablets at once."
