Yes, I feel like humira has given me 10lbs I wouldn't have otherwise.

I've had no problem with weight. I actually started Humira when I was working on gaining my weight back from a major flare last year, so I was working on my remission, and getting my weight back. I tend to hold steady on my weight anyways, always have. I am 10 pounds more than I was before my diagnosis. But I'm ok with it.

I haven't noticed any Humira gain, but I started losing the Prednisone weight (approx. 40 lbs) when I finally tapered off and started Humira in Feb. I'm actually 30 weeks pregnant now and haven't gained any weight.
