CONTRAVE should be taken by mouth in the morning and in the evening. The tablets should not be cut, chewed, or crushed. Total daily doses greater than 32 mg/360 mg per day (two tablets twice daily) are not recommended. In clinical trials, Contrave was administered with meals. However, Contrave should not be taken with a high-fat meal because of a resulting significant increase in bupropion and naltrexone systemic exposure. The warnings for Contrave that must be read are at this link:

Thank you for explaining why Contrave is not to be taken with a fatty meal. It's good to know that it would UP the exposure and not decrease it.

I take it after I eat. Taking it before makes my stomach upset.
