After reading your comments all night I have come to some conclusions.i will try contrave titrating the dosage,after food ,drinking a lot of water.i was always a slim person even after my second child (140 pounds). Since then i straggle with hormonal therapies,hysterectomy,migraines, menopause, 220 p at the moment,exercising twice a week and desperate for loosing weight as i cannot see myself in the mirror.Nothing else works,i do not eat a lot,not having sodas,looking forward to try it.Any other recommendations?any suggestions??thank you in advance. 45y.o. female
Be sure to keep a food diary to track your calories. Easy to do on a smart phone. I use the free Fitness Pal app. It has a huge calorie database and is easy to use... only takes minutes to use. It even has a barcode scanner to scan the barcode on foods. I am eating a much healthier diet using the app combined with Contrave. Contrave has reduced my food cravings, making it very easy to keep my daily calorie intake under my goal.
I know this is an older question, but I was wondering how you are doing with contrave?
I have had a very similar experience as you... always between 140 - 145 pounds even after 2 children. I am 47 and had a hysterectomy 2 1/2 years ago. Since then, I have fluctuated to 170-178 pounds. Just can't seem to loose it and keep it off. I would loose a few pounds in a couple of weeks, but put to all back again.
Started Contrave 3 weeks ago at 178 ponds and this morning I am at 173.
Just wondering if you are still taking it, how much have you lost and how are you feeling?
It is very hard to loose weight after a hysterectomy! On a positive note... after trying hormone therapy and feeling awful, my doctor prescribed welbutrim for hot flashes! It was a miracle for me, that's why she suggested contrive, since welbutrim is one of the ingredients.
Hope you are doing well with your contrive journey and looking forward to hearing about it.
