Breakthrough Treatment for "Food Addiction" -- Approval of Contrave, a New Class of Weight Loss Drug

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2014) - Contrave is a specific combination of Wellbutrin and Naltrexone that works differently from any other weight loss drug and has just been approved for the treatment of obesity.

Scottsdale Weight Loss Center (SWLC) founders, Drs. Robert Ziltzer MD and Craig Primack MD, both specialists in obesity treatment, are excited about this new weight loss medication. According to Dr. Primack, "We have until recently had limited tools. For example, there are over 14 classes and 120 choices of blood pressure medicine for patients. For obesity, I can count the number of approved medications on one hand. The approval of Contrave gives Obesity Medicine doctors a promising and effective treatment tool for our patients with serious weight related problems." Dr. Ziltzer adds, "This specific combination of two drugs leads to better appetite control and weight loss by acting directly on the hypothalamus, the appetite center in the brain. Like its use in addiction, it should decrease the mental reward of overeating when used with a comprehensive weight loss plan."
