I never had this reaction before but now it seems every Wednesday I get diarrhea and it just so happens it's my MTX day. I have been on it for 2 1/2 years....can I just now be getting side effects?

However- I have since the beginning been very gassy since I've been on it every day. Is it a known side effect or are you affected that way? I swear my family had a big joke before I started MTX that "mom never farts" now I could pass gas all day. Not that I do it in the presence of people smhair

Sorry if this has been TMI

MTX can cause stomach and intestinal issues. Besides diarrhea and gas, are you noticing any other changes in your bowels? You should tell your doctor about what you have noticed so he can evaluate whether the MTX is causing any serious GI issues.
