This is Dr. David

what side effects do you have from Contrave.

sexual dysfunction is not a common or very reported side effect from Contrave.

Common side effects of Contrave include: vomiting, insomnia, dizziness, headache, constipation, and nausea. Other side effects include: anxiety, tremor, increased blood pressure, diarrhea, depression, hypertension, and dry mouth.

but it does contain buproprion in it which can in some patients affect sexual function.

but you should also have your testosterone levels checked as well. at your age, low testosterone levels are common as well
