Contrave in South Africa

Contrave is a new appetite suppressant, used for treatment of excess weight or obesity. Similar drug was approved under different brand names, hence many people are asking – “What is the South African name for Contrave?”

Medicinal Healthcare Authorities of South Africa have not approved Contrave slimming pills yet. In South Africa, you can buy other drugs containing the same active substances (Naltrexone and Bupropion) as in Contrave.

It must be noted that drugs containing Naltrexone and Bupropion separately are never used to cure overweight or obesity. Such drugs contain different doses of active ingredients.

Contrave is produced by Orexigen Therapeutics, which also actively promotes the weight loss pills to different regions of the world. It is possible that by 2016-2017, obese people will be able to buy Contrave diet pills in South Africa.

But until now, we do not know under which brand name a combined drug with Naltrexone and Bupropion will be available in South Africa. Maybe it will be called the same as in the USA – Contrave, or as in Europe – Mysimba.

The Medicines Control Council (MCC) of South Africa controls the production, distribution, marketing and sale of medications. Usually, medications are approved by MCC quickly. Orexigen Therapeutics needs to send an application to MCC for Contrave approval.

In South Africa, you can buy other appetite suppressants. The most popular ones are Phentermine-containing drugs. However, Phentermine is intended for a short-term anti-obesity treatment, unlike Contrave.

If anorexigenic drugs you need are unavailable in South Africa or other countries of the globe, you need to find the possibility to buy Contrave online. Modern technologies allow producers to deliver Contrave weight loss pills to any region of the world.
