Here is My Question:
Hi does Ocrevus cause weight loss?
Treatment with Ocrevus will have no effect on your weight. However, we usually premedicate people with steroids just prior to their infusion to prevent infusion reactions. Short courses of steroids can cause water retention and short-term weight gain, but should not have a lasting effect on your weight.
