I have been on the Repatha for 7 months and I've gained 35 pounds with no other change in diet. Both cardiologists said this is NOT a side effect but I have no other correlation to the weight gain other than starting this medication. It has lowed my overall cholesterol from 204 to 97.

I have been on an inhibitor for almost 1.5 years and it has not caused weight gain.

I have been on Repatha for 5 months I've gained 15 lbs my face looks so different and my hair has thinned. I've been told weight gain is not a side effect yet I'm gaining when I haven't changed my way of eating. I'm so upset asking myself is it worth it. free discount card
