Perhaps because he is actually eating now? I know when Im flaring my weight goes way down...but once prednisone or w.e drug I take to control it (still havent found a good one) kicks in, Im packing the pounds right back on. Seriously like 3-5 pounds every 2 weeks. If Remicade is the first drug he has found to put him into remission (?) the weight gain is probably completely normal. I know when Im not feeling to hot, I just dont care to eat really to avoid pain, but once Im feelin better I shovel in the food. I was on Remicade for a short period of time...I had an allergic reaction, but while I was on it I did not gain any weight.
