Hi all. Tomorrow will mark two weeks that I've been on Contrave at the full dose of 2 pills 2x/day. Up until now I've had a few side effects like nausea, headache, dizziness, increased anxiety, and dry mouth. Fortunatelly they've all diminished except dry mouth and occasional anxiety increase. The only benefits I've experienced is absolutely no desire to drink (I'm an alcoholic) and reduced sugar cravings. However today I started to get my full/satiated signal very quickly. I continued to eat anyway which is why I'm overweight. After I was finished I was in so much pain. It was so bad that I will not eat like that again if that's the consequence. I'd like to hear from other members. Is this what it's like when it starts working?
