Orencia And Weight Gain?

Orencia And Weight Gain?

I have just started Orencia infusions. I had the first round of infusion every two weeks (for a total of 3) and the first monthly infusion. I realize that I have gained about 5 - 6 pounds over that period of time. I am eating exactly the same. Nothing has changed except for the Orencia. Has anyone else experienced this? It's crazy! I gained a little over a pound overnight after eating fairly lightly all the previous day.

A myRAteam Member said:

I have definitely gained about 7 lbs since i started Orencia. It makes me feel like shit. I have always been fairly thin. Now i feel like a fatty with my big belly
