What is Contrave?

Contrave is a combination of two different medications: naltrexone hydrochloride and bupropion hydrochloride. Each extended-release tablet contains:

  • Eight milligrams of naltrexone, an opioid agonist that is often prescribed for alcohol dependence, opioid dependence, or for smoking cessation treatment
  • 90 milligrams of bupropion, an aminoketone antidepressant that is used to treat depression and seasonal affective disorder
The combination of the two medications is prescribed to improve weight loss. Contrave affects your central nervous system to increase the number of calories you burn and reduce your appetite.1 The tablets are prescribed along with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise program to help certain people lose weight.


The usual starting dose of this medication is one tablet taken by mouth once daily, in the morning for the first week. For the second week, the dose is one tablet twice a day, once in the morning and one with the evening meal. The dose is increased by 1 tablet daily each week until the recommended maximum daily dose of two tablets taken twice daily.

Naltrexone-bupropion may be taken with meals. High-fat meals should be avoided, as this increases the amount of medication in the body and can increase the side effects. Swallow the tablets whole and do not cut, crush or chew them.
