I'd stay away from the meds. It will probably cause a side effect - then the doctor prescribes a new med for the side effect. and so on and so on....Just did this along with a couple cloves of raw garlic. Everything tastes like a cajun seafood boil.
This experience was a bit of an eye opener for me. Definitely going to get the flare up meds as I can see this happening again.
Thanks for all the great feedback and suggestions!
Stay hydrated. Drink extra water on the days you eat too much protein.
