What Is Contrave Used For?
Contrave prescription medication is a medication indicated for chronic weight management in some adults who are already engaging in increased physical activity and eating a reduced-calorie diet. Contrave is actually a combination of two different medications – naltrexone and bupropion. Together, these medications are thought to influence the mesolimbic dopamine circuit and the hypothalamus – two different areas of the brain. These parts of the brain are influence the appetite regulatory center and the reward system and, by influencing them, Contrave tablets can help regulate food intake, potentially improving one’s ability to lose weight. Contrave prescription medication works differently than newer GLP-1 medications such as semaglutide (Ozempic, Rybelsus, and Wegovy) and tirzepatide (Mounjaro).
