What happens if I take Contrave with Methadone?

In 2007, I was hospitalized and dx with GBS.   After years of pain meds, I found myself chewing my patch. I started Methadone treatment two years ago and currently & 120mg daily (liquid I divide am/pm @ 60mg). I’ve also been taking Wellbutrin 75mg bid.  Interested in Concave for weight loss and help with energy, but noticed interactions.  Belviq better?

These are questions you need to ask your doctor since you are on Methadone.  Some meds dont mix well with that. Better to be safe than sorry.

So, real question here.  What made your doctor describe to prescribe a weight loss drug with your history?
