Does Entyvio cause weight gain?
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 common cold
- joint pain
- infections of the nose and throat
- feeling tired
- flu symptoms
- back pain
- sinus infection
- throat pain
