My dr started me on Contrave for my depression with the advantage of the side effect of an appetite suppressant. Does any one else take this as primarily for depression?
Hi... The drug warning when you get the prescription filled specifically say not for depression so it is a little concerning that your main complaint is depression and contrave was your doctors recommendation. One of the ingredients is an antidepressant so I guess it would work, but again the combo is for weight loss not depression. Good luck, I hope it works well for you!
