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.

I have been on this dosage for almost 3 weeks and have gained 15 lbs. It works great for my headaches but I never have energy. I just want to sit on my couch and do nothing all day but sleep! I'm definitely going to see if my doctor can find me another route to take!
