About to start my second week tomorrow August 11, 2015.
As already stated, this is a fairly common side effect and does normally subside over time. You can use your pain reliever (non-naercotic of course) to help get rid of it. Many I know swear by Excederin Migrane for taking care of it. Also ensure you are getting sufficient water daily. The majority of people in the US (estimated at 75%) live in a case of chronic dehydration, and it would seem that Contrave exacerbates that problem. When you get too dehydrated, that can cause as headache (which is what causes hangeovers as welll, the dehydration brought on by alcohol). The current recommendation is that you get 1/2 you body weight in ounces of fluids daily. (More if you need to offset sweating from exercise).
