Know Your Medication

CONTRAVE is a unique, patented, combination of two drugs – naltrexone and bupropion – within a single extended-release tablet clinically proven to help you lose weight and keep it off when combined with diet and exercise. CONTRAVE is the ONLY prescription medication that contains naltrexone in an extended release, oral formulation.

The individual medicines of naltrexone and bupropion are not the same dose or formulation used in CONTRAVE and are not approved for weight loss when used on their own.

Proven Long-Term Weight Loss

The efficacy and safety of CONTRAVE were assessed in the 56-week CONTRAVE Obesity Research (COR) clinical studies.

Across 3 different clinical studies, patients struggling with obesity who took CONTRAVE, along with diet and exercise, lost 2-4 times more weight over 1 year than with diet and exercise alone. When added to diet and exercise, CONTRAVE is a long-term approach to help you achieve sustainable results. Your results may vary depending on your weight, body mass index (BMI), diet, activity level, and other factors.†

†According to 3 multicenter, double-blind, placebocontrolled obesity trials (BMI ≥30 kg/m2 , or BMI ≥27 kg/m2 with at least 1 comorbidity of hypertension,dyslipidemia, or type 2 diabetes) conducted to evaluate the effect of CONTRAVE in conjunction with reduced caloric intake and increased physical activity,the average percentage of weight loss in patients at 56 weeks ranged from 3.7% to 8.1% with CONTRAVE, compared to 1.3% to 4.9% with placebo. The percentage of patients who achieved a clinically meaningful treatment response (defined as achieving at least 5% weight loss after 1 year of treatment)ranged from 36% to 57% with CONTRAVE, compared to 17% to 43% with placebo.
