(bupropion + naltrexone)

Contrave is an FDA-approved weight loss medication that combines two active ingredients, bupropion and naltrexone. Bupropion is an antidepressant and smoking cessation aid that can also reduce appetite, while naltrexone is primarily used to treat alcohol and opioid dependence. The synergistic effect of these two components in Contrave helps to suppress appetite, reduce food cravings, and enhance weight loss.


How Contrave Works

Contrave acts on two key areas of the brain—the hunger center and the reward system. By targeting these areas, Contrave helps to regulate appetite, reduce overeating, and decrease cravings. This unique mechanism of action makes Contrave an excellent choice for individuals who struggle with emotional eating or have difficulty controlling their food intake.
