Two of the side effects from Methotrexate include diarrhea and mouth ulcers. Those are also symptoms of Crohn's disease. If you are experiencing those symptoms, how do you know if they're from the medication or if they're a flare up?

I've never had either problem from Metho...I guess if it doesn't help with the D after so long then it's probably not working so dr's know to discontinue it.
