Could Contrave be your answer to weight loss?

If you're one of the millions of people who struggle with weight, you may want to keep reading. Chances are you've tried numerous diets and exercise programs only to find yourself back at square one again. Maybe you've taken a weight loss pill before and didn't like the negative side effects that came with it. It’s understandable if you’re hesitant to try something new, but before giving up completely you may want to do a little research on the new weight loss medication called Contrave.

Here's what you should know about this recently approved drug.

What Is It?

Contrave is a combination of two medications that seem completely unrelated to weight loss: naltrexone and bupropion. Naltrexone is a drug that blocks the effects of alcohol and narcotics. It's normally given as part of a drug rehabilitation program to patients who've been addicted to alcohol or opiate drugs and are trying to come off of them. Naltrexone works by decreasing your desire to take the addictive drugs or alcohol.

Bupropion is an antidepressant medication given to patients suffering from seasonal affective disorder or a major depressive disorder and is sometimes used as a treatment to quit smoking.

You may be wondering, along with health experts, how the combination of a drug-rehab medication and an antidepressant can help you lose weight. Somehow, however, these two drugs work together to reduce hunger and food cravings. Bupropion is known to lessen your appetite and naltrexone affects the centers in your brain that make you crave food.

Who Can Take It?

Your doctor can prescribe Contrave if your body mass index (BMI) is 30 or greater or if your BMI is 27 and you have a weight-related health condition such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or type 2 diabetes.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women and people with an eating disorder, kidney failure, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or seizures should not take Contrave.

Additionally, Contrave should never be taken as a way to treat depression or addictions and shouldn't be taken in addition to other forms of bupropion drugs.

If you're just looking for a quick fix and aren't willing to put in any effort, Contrave isn't going to give you the results you desire. According to physicians who have studied the medication, Contrave works best when taken in addition to eating a healthy, reduced-calorie diet and getting regular physical activity. The drug may help reduce your appetite and cravings, but if you continue eating junk you'll only be eating less junk and won't lose much weight.

Potential Side Effects

The positive side effect of taking Contrave is weight loss. The amount varies from person to person, but you can expect to lose anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of your starting weight. If you haven't lost 5 percent of your weight within 12 weeks, you should stop taking the medication, as it will likely not provide long-term weight loss for you.

Like other drugs, Contrave comes with possible negative side effects. The most common is nausea, which is experienced by 34 percent of people. Other side effects include but aren't limited to headache, dizziness, constipation, vomiting, dry mouth, diarrhea, and insomnia.

Drinking alcohol while on Contrave increases your risk of seizures, so alcohol should be avoided. Unless instructed by your doctor, you shouldn't take additional types of weight loss pills while on Contrave.
