Started flaring the second day of a cruise celebrating my 5 yr anniversary last Monday. I also flared in 2008 when I went on vacation to the Dominican while at 5mg of pred.
I don't know if it's coincidence or that the Imuran is not helping me (was on Imuran both times) though I just went back on Imuran October 2010.
Remicade is my next step if Imuran doesn't work.
Please keep your fingers crossed for me.
Hope you all are doing well.
