Day 1. I was on roller coaster of movement n urgency to get things done. Was very happy but didn't go to sleep till 2am. Day 2 today woke ready to go just as much. Avoided donuts kids requested for breakfast and had eggs n toast. Did some chores n laid down for 5 hrs. Kids said needed sleep. Craves r slowing down. Will see what happens. I just don't care for headaches n that's will stop me from taking this med. Did notice some muscle stiffness but might have been all the engery I was using. Do like my mood being better. Was on effaxor n I put on 25 lbs n by the third month I was having rage fits. Which effected my family grwatly.
Well done for choosing a healthy breakfast! Yes you can experience increased energy levels from this medication, which is one of the reasons it can help you to loose weight. You will stabilise after a while and should have more control over food/sugar cravings. If you do experience headaches which continue please consult your doctor. I hope you do well with Contrave
