Has Any One On Benlysta Had Weight Gain From It?

Has Any One On Benlysta Had Weight Gain From It?

I was reading side effects and just wondering..

I have lost weight since starting Benlysta. I believe it's because I'm more active since my joint pain has decreased so much.

@A MyLupusTeam Member, let me know how it goes? I think I'm right behind you in trying different meds. I was on @ Methotrexate for 8 months, now @ Imuran for 6 months. Both have helped my joint pain alot. It seems that the @ Imuran is just beginning to show how much it is helping my joint pain. NONE have helped my incredibly swollen fingers, hands, wrists, knees, ankles or feet. Haven't tried @ Benlysta. They all have really negative side effects, but the potential effects of untreated lupus is worse. Let me know if you lose weight. Peace, katcove
