Thanks for this question! I was just going to ask something similar because i have been on 6-mp for about a year now, and the last 7 or months have been great, which for me is a record, but i was really hoping for a longer remission! But now I am flaring and don't know if the 6-mp stopped working, or if this is just a little blip. I would like to add to this question if I may:
If you still do flare when on Aza, 6-mp or imuran then how do you get out of the flares? Do you have to get on pred, or do you do something else? Thanks so much, i'm seeing my GI tomorrow and would love to have some idea of what to expect
