Weight gain was not reported as a side effect of Entyvio in clinical trials conducted by the manufacturer. However, when gastrointestinal diseases such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis improve, patients who have previously lost weight may gain some weight as their illness improves.

The most common side effects of Entvio include:

  • the common cold
  • headache
  • joint pain
  • nausea
  • fever
  • infections of the nose and throat
  • feeling tired
  • cough
  • bronchitis
  • flu
  • back pain
  • rash
  • itching
  • sinus infection
  • throat pain
  • pain in extremities, such as your arms or legs.
