Contrave is the same product as Mysimba however in the UK it is called mysimba and in the US it is called Contrave. Contrave is a new weight loss medication that has been developed by Orexigen Therapeutics in the US. The Contrave diet pill affects how the brain and central nervous system regulate appetite, food cravings, energy expenditure and, in turn, body weight.
The new slimming agent works by combining two different active substances. It will create a synergy effect that will make the drug more effective than other means of weight control.
The active substances in Contrave are already known by EMA and are used in other contexts. The drug comes in tablet form and releases substances in a prolonged process, so you can experience the effect over a longer period of time.
