I have been on Leflunomide for 2 months now and it is working well. However I now have the side effect of loose bowels ( sorry I hope you are not eating your tea as you read this ) and have to "go" about 4 times a day. It's particularly embarrassing when out shopping as I was today with a friend and had to find a toilet quickly (twice ). Has anyone else suffered this and can anyone suggest anything I can take to counteract this. I don't really want to give up on Leflonomide as I find it really easy to take and better than MTX so any advice will be welcome.
