Don't be too hard on yourself, I used to get lax in taking meds and would flare up, it would usually take me a few weeks to a month to get back to normal. Definitely tell your GI they need to know what is going on and why you are flaring. I told mine and he was like yeah a lot of patients do that but it is important not to do that and take your meds, and prescribed me Lialda at that time so I would be more apt to take all my meds.
Hope you are flare free soon. Also e's takes me about two weeks to see a good difference.
