I've been on Humira for 1 1/2 years, and yes I gained 20lbs. That's too much for my little frame and I'm having tons of problems trying to lose it! I thought it was because of retaining more nutrients too, but now I see a pattern with my injections- the week I do them I'm swelled up. I seem to lose the same 5 lbs, just to gain it back on the week I do my injection (I do them every other week).
I just went on Humira and I need to lose weight..... I mean a lot of weight....
I have gained a bit recently 5lb and was wondering why...
