Contrave is used with a doctor-approved exercise, behavior change, and reduced-calorie diet program to help you lose weight. Contrave is used by certain overweight people, such as those who are obese or have weight-related medical problems. Losing weight and keeping it off can lessen the many health risks that come with obesity, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and a shorter life. Naltrexone belongs to a class of drugs known as opiate antagonists, and bupropion is an antidepressant that may help restore the balance of certain natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) in your brain. These two medications work together on separate parts of the brain to reduce appetite and how much you eat. Most opiates should not be used for 7 to 10 days before starting naltrexone, but some opiate drugs (such as methadone) should not be used for 10 to 14 days before starting naltrexone. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details. Other forms of naltrexone or bupropion are used to treat a variety of conditions including depression, other mental/mood disorders, smoking cessation, addiction to opioid medication, and alcohol abuse. This combination product is not approved for these other uses. Discuss the risks and benefits of Contrave, as well as other ways to lose weight, with your doctor.
Contrave is a combination of bupropion and naltrexone. Bupropion is an antidepressant used to treat a variety of conditions, including depression and other mental/mood disorders. It can also be prescribed to help with smoking cessation or weight loss. Antidepressants can help prevent suicidal thoughts/attempts and provide other important benefits. However, studies have shown that a small number of people (especially people younger than 25) who take antidepressants for any condition may experience worsening depression, other mental/mood symptoms, or suicidal thoughts/attempts. Therefore, it is very important to talk with the doctor about the risks and benefits of antidepressant medication (especially for people younger than 25), even if treatment is not for a mental/mood condition. Tell the doctor right away if you notice worsening depression/other psychiatric conditions, unusual behavior changes (including possible suicidal thoughts/attempts), or other mental/mood changes (including new/worsening anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping, irritability, hostile/angry feelings, impulsive actions, severe restlessness, very rapid speech). Be especially watchful for these symptoms when a new antidepressant is started or when the dose is changed. If you are using naltrexone/bupropion to lose weight, stop taking Contrave and tell your doctor right away if you have any of the symptoms listed above. Tell your doctor right away if you have any of these symptoms after stopping treatment.
How to Use Contrave
Read the Medication Guide if available from your pharmacist before you start taking naltrexone/bupropion and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Contrave by mouth with a low-fat meal as directed by your doctor, usually twice daily. You may have trouble sleeping when you start taking Contrave. Do not take your evening dose too close to bedtime. Swallow the tablets whole. Do not crush or chew Contrave. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects such as seizures. The Dosage of Contrave is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, and other medications you may be taking. Your dose will be slowly increased to lower the risk of seizures and to limit side effects such as sleeplessness, symptoms of withdrawal from opiates, and high blood pressure. Do not increase your dose, take it more often, or stop taking it without your doctor's approval. Use Contrave regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day. Tell your doctor if you have not lost weight after 16 weeks on Contrave.
Before taking naltrexone/bupropion, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Contrave may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Contrave, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,high blood pressure, heart disease (such as congestive heart failure/recent heart attack), mental/mood disorders (such as bipolar disorder/thoughts of suicide), diabetes, current or recent use (in the last 7-14 days) of any type of opioid drug (such as morphine/methadone/buprenorphine), kidney disease, liver disease (such as cirrhosis), high pressure in the eye (glaucoma), use/abuse of drugs/alcohol, seizures or conditions that increase your risk of seizures (including brain/head injury, brain tumors, arteriovenous malformation, eating disorders such as bulimia/anorexia nervosa). Contrave may make you dizzy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Avoid alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Alcohol may also increase your risk of seizures. After stopping treatment with Contrave, you may be more sensitive to opioids, increasing your risk of possibly life-threatening side effects from opioids (such as decreased breathing, loss of consciousness). Contrave blocks the effects of opiate drugs (including heroin) and similar drugs (opioids). However, large doses of heroin or opioids can overcome this block. Trying to overcome this block is very dangerous and may cause serious injury, loss of consciousness, and death. Follow your doctor's instructions closely. Do not take Contrave with any other product that contains bupropion (such as antidepressants or smoking cessation drugs) since large doses of bupropion are more likely to cause seizures. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of Contrave, especially dizziness. Dizziness can increase the risk of falling. Contrave must not be used during pregnancy. Weight loss during pregnancy is not recommended and may harm an unborn baby. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away. Contrave passes into breast milk and may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Contrave, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.dextromethorphan, diarrhea medications (such as diphenoxylate), disulfiram, pimozide, opioid pain or cough relievers (such as codeine, hydrocodone), tamoxifen. Taking MAO inhibitors with Contrave may cause a serious (possibly fatal) drug interaction. Avoid taking MAO inhibitors (isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, safinamide, selegiline, tranylcypromine) during treatment with Contrave. Most MAO inhibitors should also not be taken for two weeks before and after treatment with Contrave. Ask your doctor when to start or stop taking Contrave. Contrave may interfere with certain medical/laboratory tests (including urine tests for amphetamine, opioid drug tests, and brain scan for Parkinson's disease), possibly causing false test results. Make sure laboratory personnel and all your doctors know you use Contrave.
