Welcome to the forum! A flare up is different for every person. Some people will flare for a few weeks, others months, others years. It all depends on how you respond to your meds, and how you look after yourself (sleep, stress, etc).
Your meds won't fully kick in until you've been on them for about 6 weeks. In the meantime take care of yourself, get lots of rest and manage your stress as best you can. Then see how your meds start working for you.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
