Hi betterdays, I gained about 20 lbs while on Remicade but it helped me feel so much better for about 3 years. I would recommend trying to do more physical activity and lowering your calorie intake some, but don't expect the weight to come off quickly. At least you will be trying and be doing good for yourself even if you don't see extreme results. I am glad the Remicade's working for you and welcome to healingwell!
