I was taking Contrave for just under 2months I noticed from day one that I had nausea, headaches, hot flashes, and wasn't sleeping at night. I have gotten sick I don't know how many times and had enough. I was so happy with the weight I had lost in such a short period of time, the first month I was down 15lbs and was continuing on that path. I work in shipping and I missed a shipment because I had to run to the bathroom because I got sick and last night I threw the prescription away. It tells you to be active but I noticed for me the more active I was the worse the symptoms got. I just want to know from someone that has stopped taking Contrave how long do the side effects last once you stop taking the medicine?
