Hi and welcome.Weight gain is not known side effect of benfotiamine. You need to be careful with diet along with regular exercise. Cut down on fatty and high carbohydrate diet and take lots of fluids and do regular exercise for at least 30 minutes daily. Get your thyroid function tests as decreased thyroid hormone also cause weight gain.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.
