    CONTRAVE

    Contrave with varying doses causes 7-8% weight loss in six months, 8-9% in nine months

    Among patients who finished the study, those given Contrave, with higher than 300 mg doses of Wellbutrin (bupropion) and one of three different doses of naltrexone -- I assume less than 50 mg used in the previous study in order to try and reduce nausea -- lost an average of 7 percent to 7.6 percent after six months compared to 1.1 percent for those given a placebo. After nine months, the average weight loss for those still in the study was 8 percent to 9.3 percent.
