Anyone deal with gaining weight while on remicade and already being obese? How do you manage? I already diet.

I tried that treatment awhile at that time i was close to 200. I drank more water and walked a bit more. While laying down i did some lag lifts and crunches nothing crazy no large amount just a bit what you can tolerate and then youll notice you an increase as you go. Important to set your pace tho
Honestly I’ve never thought about this, but I’ve been on Remicade since 2011 and I used to never be able to gain weight, but I suddenly have since about 2020ish. At that time I was also on a SSRI and I am on BC, so idk if that played a part. But yes I do still have to be mindful of my weight even being off the SSRI, so maybe Remicade does play a role ?
I honestly just keep up with my calories and try to workout when I can (treadmill, core exercises)
