Is the Weight Loss Medicine Contrave Low in Toxicity?
One of the reasons I am taking LDN is because of the low side effects and toxicity to the body. Would you say the weight loss medicine Contrave is also low in toxicity? Contrave obviously as Michelle said it combines Wellbutrin or bupropion which is historically an antidepressant medication. I think if you're taking these appropriately and being monitored as prescribed then I would say that you're probably fine in the toxicity schedule. Normally the LDN dose in Contrave is eight milligrams, so slightly higher. The Wellbutrin or bupropion dose is around 90 and then you kind of titrate up from there. Historically there haven't been a lot of issues with this medication but it does need to be monitored by a prescriber.
