What Makes CONTRAVE Different?

There is no generic or generic equivalent to CONTRAVE on the market today. CONTRAVE is a unique, patented, combination of two drugs — naltrexone and bupropion — within a single extended-release tablet clinically proven to help your patients 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.
