There a few different ways to start and maintain this med. Some doctors start you on 200mg/day and increase to 400 mg after a 1-4 weeks, to allow your body to adjust, then you stay on the 400 mg until you are feeling really well and then some docs lower the dose to 200 mg. Other docs start you on the 400 and lower or increase it as needed.
The fact that you are feeling better may mean the med is working . . . or it may mean that your flare has ended. I would ask YOUR doc what he/she would suggest. . . always good to get the big ok from the doc who prescribed.
