I stopped taking phentermine after a month and a half due to severe itching and rash. My doctor then prescribed Contrave. I have done well with it over the last three weeks, but yesterday was my first day to take the full dose. The itching has returned. I am assuming that I must be allergic to something in both drugs. Interestingly, I took phentermine four years ago with no problems at all.
CARA; No there two different medications completely but Cantave has been known when you start it or up the dose to cause side effects for a week or so and then go away. Hope this is the case with you unless you break out in a real rash I would try and get through it but you might let the doctor know what is up and he may have a different idea, Or give you something for itching temp. Until you get through with this side effect give your doctor a call. Chuck1957
