I finished a bottle in 4 weeks had to start with full dose dr recommended because it was just not working for me with the 1-2 a day. I was hungrier than ever!!! Then when I started the full dosage about a week taking it I still didn’t see any major changes just increase heart palpitations. I was still hungry and couldn’t sleep at night so I became irritable. How long do I have to continue taking this before I can benefit from it. I still think about food and my cravings have gotten even more out of control!!! I’m so frustrated and disappointed. All that money spent for nothing.
l am sorry that Contrave isn't working for you, it is not for everyone and it works differently on individuals, myself It started working immediately , first week l lost 7 pounds and after 6weeks l was down 23 pounds, full dosage is a challenge for me , my body can't take it as it is very strong for me so l am sticking with 3 pills per day 2 in AM and 1 in the evening and l am doing fine with it. again Contrave is not for everyone as everybody is different. You can read most of the Contrave reviews here so you can get the idea of what other people are saying about it.
I started taking Contrave on February 19, 2019 and I had my first follow up appointment March 20, 2019 and I lost 8 pounds. My cravings has decreased DRASTICALLY!! My portions of food intake has gone considerable down (which has made my calorie intake down). I am eating between 1200 - 1500 (closer to the 1200 but I keep the 1500 close by to cover me on weekend... lol) calories per day (and believe me that is alot and your body should be satisfied). My doctor is writing my prescription refills on a monthly basis (along with a weigh-in) to hold me accountable and I am feeling great. I wish you the best and please feel free to contact me if you need a friend to talk to who knows that this struggle is REAL. Good luck to us both!!
