Brief Answer:
Contrave dosing

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You have been using Contrave for weight loss and it has been working up until recently. you had a great response with loss of 20 lbs. The maximum dose of Contrave is 2 tablets twice daily. So if you have only been taking one tablet twice daily you can increase the dose to its maximum 4 tablets daily. That should get you back on track and back to losing weight.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
