Weight Gain and Remicade

I know many of you have lost tons of weight because of this illness. I have not, but have gained around 30 pounds. No, matter what I do I can not lose this weight..I've did a little research and some say that the Remicade keeps you from losing weight. What do you all think?

I put on a few pounds due to lack of exercise, but still eating a lot.

Now im back doing runs every few days and going to the gym I have found my weight is coming off pretty easy tbh

I've gained ~30 lbs since starting remicade. I was underweight when I started but I was hoping the weight gain would stop after a few months. I'm worried it's not.
