I do not take it but these are common side effects:
Common Contrave side effects may include:
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation;
dry mouth; or
sleep problems (insomnia).
Very common (10% or more): Sleep disorders (up to 13.8%)
Common (1% to 10%): Depression, anxiety, irritability
Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Insomnia, abnormal dreams, nervousness, dissociation (feeling spacey), tension, agitation, mood swings
Rare (less than 0.1%): Suicidal ideation
As it causes insomnia, I would recommend you take it in the AM, then again it would be beneficial if you called your Dr. and clarify your intake schedule.
Best of luck.
