Question Ever stopped a flare-up with methotrexate?

Has anyone ever successfully stopped a flare-up with methotrexate only? I had a dm flare(CK around 200) while on 10 mg/week of methotrexate and no prednisone. My rheumi wants to increase methotrexate to 20 mg/wk and no prednisone. Just wondering if this has ever worked for anyone without the prednisone to start off? Thanks.
