I recently started taking Methotrexate along with prednisone to control my Crohn's and it seems to be working very well. My arthritis is almost non-existant and I have felt terrific for weeks but now I have very watery stools most of the time. Anyone know if that is a side effect of Meyhotrexate or something else?
Crohns 30 years. Ileostomy for 15 years. Symptom free for 14 years until 10 months ago. Was on Remicade but just recently switched to Methotrexate, low dose prednisone, and iron. Feeling wonderful.  
God Bless. Tony

you might want to think about taking L-glutamine supplement

How is your transit time?
Since I have never really completely been out of a flare I cannot answer if it is a side effect or just rapid transit.

I'm on methotrexate but for me I don't think its affects my stools. I have a very quick system which doesn't absorb fat well which for me results in watery, loose, often acidic stools. I take codeine every morning to slow my system right down so I can carry out my day normally and take calcium to help with consistency (discovered this trick on the IBS forum - absolutely brill as Questran etc did nothing for me)
