I was recently informed by the pharmacy technician that there is a weight loss medication called "CONTRAVE"...
CONTRAVE contains naltrexone (treats opioid dependence) and bupropion (treats depression/anxiety).
As per Lexicomp: "Naltrexone is a pure opioid antagonist, and bupropion is a relatively weak inhibitor of the neuronal reuptake of dopamine and norepinephrine. The exact neurochemical effects of naltrexone/bupropion leading to weight loss are not fully understood. Effects may result from action on areas of the brain involved in the regulation of food intake: the hypothalamus (appetite regulatory center) and the mesolimbic dopamine circuit (reward system)."
I've decided to create my own weight loss medication.
It will be a combination of:
2) running 10 kilometres to the pharmacy for daily observed doses
I will call it "CONTRIVE".
