Am about to be put on Enbrel shots for RA & am concerned about weight.
Enbrel doesn't appear to cause weight gain. There are quite a few reviews in the link below and none have mentioned weight gain.
It's not mentioned as a known side effect either.
I'm not sure yet but I had my first shot 6 days ago. I was real sick for a few days and I am up 5 lbs. in just 6 days. It is not the prednisone as I had lost 60 lbs. so far this year until taking the Enbrel. The pain is way down and I have cut my morphine use. I am not sure whether to pick up my first prescription today or not. I have a call into the doctor. I weigh over 300 and cannot afford to gain 5-6 lbs. a week from a medication.
