I am about to start my prescription. Most of the side effects I read here are similar to what I had while I took Wellbutrin for several years (sweating, sensitive to smells, impatient) that I never knew were side effects of Wellbutrin.
(I gained 6 lbs my first month off of Wellbutrin, which was a surprise, I didn't think stopping an anti-depressant would cause weight gain)
So I am interested to hear what happens AFTER you discontinue Contrave.
Does the weight stay off, or do you have weight gain? How do you feel after
you stop using Contrave?
Or is this a medication that you have to plan to take 'for life' as a maintenance medication?
