Hi Cindy,
I know you asked Keith but if those were my tests, I would not increase the dose.
But tests are not the only reason to increase a dose. If the flares are not improving, that would be one of the reasons warranting a dose increase. In my opinion, frequent but short (typically lasting less than a day) and mild flares moving from one location to another can be a sign of improvement and do not count as a reason to increase the dose.
And in answer to your earlier question, I would wait at least two more months before lowering the dose. Again, the symptoms matter as well as the tests.
