My dr prescribed this to me about 3 weeks ago but Im so nervous to start it. Anyone have any info on this drug? I can't find reviews anywhere.
All it is is a combo of two old medications bupropion and naltrexone. So you see you aren't taking a new medication.

I was nervous about trying it too. So far all I can research on it seems to be drug labeling information. There aren't many actual users posting their experiences yet because it is so new. Hopefully there will be more postings soon!
I'm on my second week. I've experienced some tiredness the first week. When I started the dose for my second week (2 pills in a day) I felt a little loopy after the evening pill. Today will be day two with this dose so I will see if I feel the same effect.
How are you doing now? I noticed your post was 9 days ago so hopefully you have started taking by now. I have been on for 1 month. Not sure yet about appetite, this being holiday time, stressful! I also suffer seasonal allergies around this time of yr and have been having mild headaches for a few days. Hard to tell if any of this is related to drug or not.
