I'm actually in a flare right now and I just got off prednisone the first week of July, and my doctor wanted me to go back on the prednisone until the Imuran started working (three months or so) and I just told him I'd rather be really sick and wait three months being sick for it to work, then get back on prednisone and take that much longer to get off again. No thanks, I'm done with it.
