Contrave

Contrave is an FDA-approved weight loss treatment that works when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. It is taken orally in tablet form once or twice a day and should be swallowed whole. Contrave dosage is gradually increased over time with your doctor’s approval. This is to avoid triggering sleeplessness or other side effects.

You should start to see the effects of weight loss within a four-month period with your Contrave online prescription. If you do not, you should consult with your DrHouse clinician to see if this is the right weight loss treatment for you.

What Is Contrave Prescribed For?

Contrave is intended for adults who are overweight with specific conditions, or those who have struggled to lose weight on their own. With a healthy diet, lifestyle changes, and behavior modification, it can help individuals lose weight. DrHouse’s expert medical team will be able to advise on whether Contrave is the right medication for your weight loss program. They will also be able to suggest other lifestyle changes to ensure that your Contrave online prescription works effectively.

How Does Contrave Work?

Contrave is an extended-release drug, which means the active ingredients are released over a longer period of time. It is a combination of two drugs, naltrexone and bupropion. Naltrexone interacts with the parts of your brain that control how much food you eat, and the feeling of fullness after eating. Bupropion helps to regulate your mood and the levels of certain chemicals in the brain.

These two drugs combined work together to influence how hungry you feel. Over time, you should feel less hungry, and feel fuller after eating. Your DrHouse online clinician will gradually increase your dose of Contrave safely over time, to help you achieve the full benefits of the weight-loss treatment. It is very important to maintain a healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes to feel the full benefit of a Contrave prescription.

What Are the Side Effects of Contrave?

When you buy Contrave online, it’s essential that you follow the prescription recommended. Uncommon side effects include nausea, constipation, stomach pain, trouble sleeping, and dry mouth. If these symptoms persist over several days and do not go away, you should contact your doctor immediately.

Rare side effects that require urgent assistance include agitation, memory loss, confusion, fainting, tremors, and ringing in the ears. You must contact your doctor immediately if you experience these side effects. If you take or have recently taken opioid medications, you may feel the effects of opioid withdrawal with a Contrave online prescription.

In extremely rare cases, the drug may cause seizures. Do not take the drug again if you have had a seizure after taking Contrave. You must go to the hospital immediately if you have had a seizure.

Frequently asked questions

  • With the support of DrHouse’s expert team of clinicians, you can get an online Contrave prescription. You will need to fill out a questionnaire outlining your weight, any medications you are currently taking, and your medical history. An expert medical professional at DrHouse will review your questionnaire to ensure Contrave is right for you.

  • Contrave is taken orally once or twice a day. It should be taken with a low-calorie meal and swallowed, not chewed. You should have it with your lunch time or breakfast meal, as taking Contrave late at night might cause problems sleeping.

  • You should avoid unhealthy foods and sugary drinks while taking Contrave. You may also wish to reduce your alcohol intake and caffeine consumption. Contrave should not be taken with a type of antidepressant called MAO inhibitors. A Contrave online prescription may also interfere with certain urine tests or brain scans, so always tell your doctor before you take either of these tests.

  • Simply fill out our quick and easy online questionnaire and a DrHouse qualified clinician will review your medical history to ensure that Contrave is right for you. Our team will ensure that Contrave is suitable for your body type, and will not interfere with any medications you are currently taking. Make sure you fill out all your current medications and conditions so that our doctor can ensure Contrave is right for you.

  • Contrave is only suitable for individuals who need support with weight loss and may interfere with other drugs and medications. For this reason, Contrave is available via prescription only.

  • To get an online prescription for Contrave you will have to set up an account with us, download the DrHouse app and make an on-demand visit with one of our board-certified clinicians.

  • Our clinicians are able to prescribe up to a 90-day prescription for any previously prescribed medications, that are not classified as controlled substances. They use their medical judgment to determine whether to prescribe and the duration.

    In certain cases, the prescription may be limited to 30 days. There also may be a 12-month cap for some prescriptions.  For medications requiring annual monitoring (such as blood work or imaging), the maximum prescription limit is 90 days within a year.
