I am a Weight Watcher and very successful. I do not wish to ruin all my hard work if this med adds lbs. Have not tried it yet due to that main concern. Suffering from IBS (both D and C), bloating, gas, stomach pain, etc. This was just presc. by my new gastro.

Good morning. From my researching most people do have a weight gain. I have also seen Enbrel that is used to treat arthritis work for IBS. Just be a great advocate for yourself. No one knows you more then you. If you don't agree with your new dr try a second opinion. Good luck.
