I was on Methotrexate for about 2 yrs and Folic Acid along with Piroxicam. After the 2 years I began getting tons of canqer(no idea how to spell that) sores in my mouth, they would stay forever and were huge. I had some stomach issues, and lost some weight. My Rheumatologist took me off of the Methotrexate and Folic Acid to see if it was the meds or if i just would get them. Sure enough it was the medication. So there are other side effects as well. You sound like you need something for your belly though. Zolfran works really, really well. My arthritis is absolutely at its worst and I am on no medication for it at this time, as my dr. isn't sure what she want to put me on.....ugggg Hang in there though.
