I had stomach cramps with Alimta and the vitamin I took every day. I hated it. I stopped this treatment for other reasons, but the stomach cramping was a big issue for me - not for my doctor. Watch that you stay as regular as possible, and that you pass as much gas as possible. Don't hold it in!

For starters, make sure you do everything possible to keep from getting constipated. I took Miralax day before and day of treatment, then senna tablets as needed. I always found that keeping a little something in my stomach helped, so I'd have an Ensure or something. MJ
