Contrave shares some similarities with other treatments for weight loss. It’s a tablet, like Xenical, but works in a different way to this medication. Xenical, instead, works by preventing the body from digesting fat, which is eliminated without being fully processed by the body.
Like Saxenda, Contrave has an effect on appetite, but the way the medication is administered is quite different (Saxenda is an injection).
So which is better? It depends on a number of things: what you’ve used before, whether it was successful, and to an extent how much weight you need to lose and how quickly you want to lose it. Our clinicians can help you settle on the treatment that works best for you.
