    I've been on Gilenya for a few years and have experienced weight gain - especially in the stomach and hips. I increased expercise and decreased calorie intake to no avail. Has anyone else experienced similar side effects?

    Weight gain is not one of the typical adverse events associated with gilenya.  I, too have been taking it for a few years and have gained weight in those areas.  I just assumed it was menopause.  I would be interseted to hear what you find out.

    According to my neurologist, the chemical process by which Gilenya works would not cause weight gain.
