Hi. I want to increase to full dosage faster than 4 weeks. At the middle of week 1 and at 2 pills w/ side effects, but not working that well yet. Can I keep increasing if I don't mind side effects? Anyone increase faster than the doctor recommended? Thanks.
Contrave is more about changing your lifestyle and learning how to eat properly as well as lose weight. In the grand scheme of things, you get too little benefit shortcutting the time to justify the "risks" (side effects).
Rather than looking to rush ahead, now would be the time to review your diet and calorie plans to see what you may wish to modify. Use an app like My Fitness Pal, to calculate and then track the number of calories you should be and are eating in a day. Stay positive, plan out your food, and you should be going good in no time at all.
