It is kind of funny to see all these comments because I have been asking myself the same question. I have gained about 25lbs since starting Remicade. I have been eating well and I am active.
I understand that my body is better and I am absorbing more. But to this point?
I have had 9 infusions and I find myself wondering how I will keep the weight off!
Definiately weight gain for me. Been on Remicade almost 3 years, I exercise and watch what I eat, but gained a good 20 pounds. But, I would rather have the extra 20 and be able to leave the house and function, so it's worth it. I couldn't function with constant diahrea. My doctor says it's not from Remicade or Methotrexate, but I'm pretty sure it is.
