Contrave is a prescription medication used for weight management in adults.

It combines two drugs: naltrexone and bupropion.

Naltrexone is typically used to treat addiction to alcohol or narcotics

Bupropion is an antidepressant and smoking cessation aid

Together, these medications can help control appetite and cravings, aiding weight management.

 Contrave should be used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for best results.

It's not a magic solution for weight loss and may not be suitable for everyone.

Consultation with a healthcare provider is necessary to determine if Contrave is appropriate considering medical history and other medications.

Common side effects may include nausea, constipation, headache, vomiting, dizziness, insomnia, and dry mouth.
