... the middle of the day. I am starting my 2nd week on Contrave. The side effects are gone. I only had a headache for 2 days and nausea for one. Also I signed up for ScaleDown and received my scale. I am not able to get my weight sent. I keep getting the Cell error. All the tell me to do is move my scale around until I can get a good cell signal. I have tried every room and both porches with no success. Anyone else have trouble with theirs? I was looking forward to the support they give but so far no luck. Thanks for any help you can give
How should I take Contrave?
Take Contrave exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
This medicine is usually taken in the morning and evening. Do not take more than 2 tablets at once.
Do not take Contrave with a high-fat meal, or you may be more likely to have a seizure. If you have a seizure while taking Contrave, you may never be able to take it again.
Do not crush, chew, or break an extended-release Contrave tablet. Swallow the tablet whole.
Your pulse and blood pressure will need to be checked often. If you have diabetes, your blood sugar will also need to be checked often.
Your doctor will need to check your progress while you are using this medicine. If you have not lost at least 5% of your starting weight after 16 weeks of treatment, this medicine may not be right for you.
If you need to use narcotic medicine for any reason (such as pain, surgery, or treatment for drug addiction) you may need to stop taking Contrave for a short time. You also may need to use a lower dose of any narcotic medicine you have used in the past. Follow your doctor's dosing instructions very carefully.
Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
I am having the same problem with the scale not sending my weight. I have moved it several places around the house and no luck. How does it work anyway. I have wifi - does it send over wifi? And if so I have password. I am just not sure how the scale works! Any help appreciated!
