What mesalamine med is he on?
In any case, mesalamine is something we generally take all the time. It's supposed to keep us in remission longer, and I believe it's one reason my flares haven't been as bad as my first one. So - the short answer is yes, he should stay on it.
Depending on how much he's taking, he might be able to increase the dose to help combat a flare.
Where is he located? In the resource section at the top of this forum there are patient assistance programs if he needs financial help for meds.....
