I have just been prescribed leflunomide to take alongside methotrexate as it's not working on its own. Does anyone have experience of this? Any awful side effects?

Thanks in advance

I just take Leflunomide on its own and the only side effects I have are migraines and faster bowels. I eat and within 30 minutes I'm on the toilet! The migraines I was having already but they have increased in frequency. They want me to go on methotrexate but I've heard too many horror stories about that to try.
