Water weight gain - could very well be cause my knees definately feel different. I'm hoping to see my dr. in the next couple of weeks, I'm already on a water pill for my blood pressure, so, I don't want to increase it. I'll never leave the bathroom!!! Thanks everyone for your input.

No weight gain here, but much increased energy and ability to exercise. Are you taking Methotrexate with the Enbrel? If so, it could be the culprit. I swelled up while taking it, mostly water, and had major deformation of my joints, energy disappeared. I refused to take any more, and am getting along just fine on the Enbrel without it.

Never taken it but once again different people can have different side affects so it very well could be Enbrel making you gain weight

when I was on Enbrel I didn’t gain weight but I couldn't loose and I had a water weight fluctuation of 3-7 pounds of fluid depending on the injection cycle.

I've been on Enbrel for 6 months now, and the scale is climbing up - I was told there is not a weight gain with this drug. But I did some checking online and others complain about weight gain. Anyone else having this problem with Enbrel? I feel so much better on this drug, would just like to get the scale moving in a downward motion.
