I am about to start Contrave but was a little worried when I read that a high fat meal could increase stroke risk. Is that good fats or any fats? Has anyone had any experience with this? Thank you for your help.

I'm sorry it was seizure risk, not stroke.
drnoakes; Not to worry they are just meaning they want you to cut down on high-fat food like meat with lots of grease etc The people doing the best is slight diet change and the little bit of walking and exercise. You would have to eat a lot of fat to have this happen then you are defeating the point of the pills and diet.Please feel free to join our support group and ask questions to help you get through any side effects etc. Just go to the top right corner and hover over your name and a drop down screen appear and click on support group then just follow the directions and see what people on this are saying and what they do for the side effects many have done very good on this and the support group is free to take advantage of it.
As someone who actually takes Contrave and has contact with many other people who also take it, the best answer I have heard is that your meal should not be more than 50% fat. Obviously, this can differ for individuals. The type of fat does not matter. Unless you are on a low carb, high fat diet you will likely not have a problem. Hope this helps!
