Methorexate & digestive system
sfonseca7 posted:
Approximately half an hour after eating anything, my stomach fills with so much gas and pain I think I will explode, those feeling fade away with time passing. This happens every time I eat. Does anyone out there feel this?

I too have this problem but I also have IBS and have always had some stomach problem. I did notice that when I went from 8 8 tabs to 9 tabs weekly on methorexate, I did have severe problems with gas/relex and chest pain. The RA doctor had me cut down back to 8 tabs and it is better but still have problems.
