Contrave for Weight Loss: Is it right for you?

Contrave® Prescription Information

Contrave is an FDA-approved prescription medication used for chronic weight management in adults with overweight and obesity. It is a combination medication meant to target areas of the brain tied to cravings and appetite. Contrave, like other prescription weight loss medications, is meant to be used in conjunction with a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity. It is just one of the FDA-approved medications prescribed by Form Health® doctors that can help you to lose weight by reducing your appetite and cravings.

When Would a Form Health Doctor Prescribe Contrave

Contrave may be considered if you have not been able to lose weight or maintain weight loss with diet and exercise alone. The use of Contrave does not replace the need to develop and maintain healthy habits and this medication is most effective when used in conjunction with a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity. At Form Health, our first priority is helping you achieve lasting lifestyle changes and better health. Patients work one-on-one with a Board Certified Doctor and a Registered Dietitian who take a comprehensive, evidence based approach which includes nutrition, physical activity, mindset shifts and medication, when appropriate. Our program, including prescriptions for medication like Contrave, is delivered through a 100% virtual platform.

Who Qualifies for Contrave?

You may qualify for Contrave if:

  1. Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is above 30.
  2. Your BMI is higher than 27, and you have weight-related health issues, like high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
  3. You've made lifestyle changes, but are still unable to lose weight and/or have a history of high and low weight changes.

It's important to note that even if one of these points apply to you, you still may not be eligible for taking Contrave. Your medical history, current medications, and insurance benefits must also be taken into consideration, as well as a shared decision-making discussion between you and your Form Health doctor.
