I've seemed to be putting on unexplained weight. I've been on the injection for the last three months and I'm gaining weight now.
Agreed. This is happening to me too. I have been on Humira a year now and over the last few months have been putting on weight that I can't seem to lose. I eat little and fairly healthy. Plus I'm walking 20-30 minutes a day. It is very frustrating. But the Humira is keeping me healthy otherwise so I guess I will take the weight gain in return. K
Dear Griffin - I have been on Humira 4+ yrs and have gained about 15 lbs. I use it for Crohns Disease and it has helped. Not enough for remission, but, since Crohns comes with many digestive "problems", a reduction in some symptoms has helped me be able to eat a little more than before. Although Ensure drinks make up the biggest part of my nutrition, the weight gain is simply because I am digesting a little more, rather than vomiting all. I also take Prednisone, which is more than likely the culprit, I still think the Humira has at least added to the increase.
I've been on Humira since July of 2014. It is now early March and I have put on at least 20 lbs if not more. I have psoriasis and this has gotten worse and I am in more pain now from the arthritis than ever before. It could be stress and that has also increased in my life but I do not believe the Humira has helped me in any way it was supposed to.
