Weight Loss Prescription – Contrave

Weight Loss Prescription - Contrave

Contrave is an exciting new FDA-approved weight-loss medication available by prescription that demonstrates tremendous success in helping individuals drop unwanted and unhealthy weight. It contains 2 different medicines that have been used on their own for years, naltrexone and bupropion. Naltrexone has been prescribed for opioid and alcohol dependence, while bupropion aids in smoking cessation. When combined into one pill, these drugs work on the body’s hypothalamus or hunger center to reduce appetite and the mesolimbic reward system to regulate food cravings.

Studies of patients who utilized Contrave for a year showed that they lost about 2-4 times more weight than by dieting and exercising alone.  It is ideal for adults who have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or more. Those with a BMI of 27 or greater and have one or more weight-connected medical issues (type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure) can lose weight and maintain weight loss long-term.

In conjunction with a carefully planned low-calorie diet and more physical activity, Contrave allows most individuals to lose at least 5% of their body weight without feeling hungry and without craving certain foods. It is important to allow your body to adjust to the medication by starting slowly, as prescribed by your doctor, and working up to full prescription strength of 2 tablets twice daily.

To ensure your safety at all times, your doctor will discuss your overall health with you and any medical concerns that might affect the efficacy of Contrave in your situation. You will undergo a physical exam and tell your physician about other medications and supplements that you are currently taking. While on Contrave, you will be monitored and offered guidance about the medication and diet and exercise programs.
