Hello everyone , my doctor recently prescribed me contrave , I'm so scared to try it :( I'm so scared of side effects like I've tried other meds and I hate the neck pain or shakiness they gave me. I see so many reviews. Please on a personal note what do u guys think should I try it I'm just scared.
I understand your concern, but my suggestion is to try it and if you have too many side effects, stop taking it. One side effect that I love is I sleep like a baby! And I dream and dream and dream. It's great! Other than that, the nausea and headaches are completely gone (although it took about a month or two to go away). They didn't get bad until on three pills and were worse on 4, but I went back down to three and then stayed there for a week and then after going back up to 4 I was fine with no side effects. See how you like it. If you are having too many problems or if it's not working, then discontinue. Oh, I was shaky (like I'd had three cups of coffee) for about 2 weeks when I was on four pills but that also went away quickly. I've lost 30 pounds since the end of October so for me, it was ALL WORTH IT! :-) Good luck!
