There has been several threads in the past questioning if others have noticed weight gain when on Remicade. A recently published study of people receiving Remicade and Enbrel for spondyloarthropathy [SpA] established that there was significant weight gain in people on these anti-TNF meds.

Yes thanks so much for this article. When doctors are basically making patients think they are crazy... I appreciate finding documented proof tremendously helpful.
I wonder if the study monitored their calorie intake over that time period as well to rule out weight gain due to eating more often/ foods with higher fat content.
Nonetheless, there is a connection here.
Appreciate you.
