I started developing minor constipation around week 3. 20% developed this side effect from what I have read. I eat plenty of fiber and drink lots of water. 2-3 days into week four the problem got worse. I've tried OTC medicines, extra fiber supplements, and eating foods that would normally cause immediate results (grapes especially). I decided to stop taking Contrave because of this. It's been 3 days since my last dose. My bowels aren't quite back to normal yet.
Has anyone else had constipation issues and been able to get it resolved and continue on this drug?
