No the doc did not say anything about weight gain. The literature said possible weight changes on the Desyrel which I started at the same time.

So after 5 added water pounds I stopped both meds Saturday night and am toughing things out until I hear from the doc. Weight is back down some (still 2 more to go) hands and feet swelling is improved. May take an Ultram tonight even if I do not hear from the doc. Need to be able to get some sleep. Being in pain is OK during the day, but not at night.
Thanks - My Rheum agrees it was probably from the Desyrel, so last night I took the Ultam and finally got some sleep, thank goodness. Woke up a few times but at least not from pain. Will keep my fingers crossed.
