Any helpful hints? Yes, I love the "freedom from food" that it gives me; but oh, the nausea is devastating! I feel as if I am constantly going to hurl; I can't drink as much water as I used to. The thought of food just makes me sick, but I eat anyway, because I'm hungry, and I know I need to. I am just this week taking 1 in the am, and 1 in the pm- trying to hold on, hoping that the nausea will subside.
I took something for nausea every time I got nauseated. I started to stop because of it but it stopped after two weeks.
Hi Betty, Have you tried Bonine? It works and there is no contradiction with the medication. You can get it at the drug store in the motion sickness aisle. Also lots of water even when you feel queasy it helps it to subside..
If you are on Facebook please join our group.. Contrave support group.. They have a ton of answers and encouragement for anyone on Contrave. Good luck!
Bonine works. Non-drowsy Dramamine works. Try eating some protein before you take the pill. I second joining the facebook group. Tons of people there. There is always someone there who has had any problem you might have had.
