Unfortunately, a LOT of the meds we're prescribed come with weight gain as a side effect (just ONCE I wish the side effects would be "become irresistible" but I've yet to hear about that drug trial)Usually it's an issue of one or two things (sometimes both). I've noticed on some forums folks have experienced this. If so, have you spoken with your rheum, changed your dosage, or found other ways to combat this side effect? Some of these drugs increase your appetite and cravings, some of them increase your water retention.
