Shorta, I have taken MTX in the past and at a high dosage I did not gain weight. I have never taken Humira, but I was on Embrel for 2 1/2 yrs. I did not gain weight on it. You have to look at it differently now as the pain with RA and PSA is sometimes unbearable. After turning 65, I lost my private ins. and medicare does not pay for injections of this type ($2,100) monthly. So if you are able to take these drugs to relieve your pain and you gain a little weight so be it. Take the pain-free drugs and hit the gym or walk. Good luck to you..
