Realistically, how long before, plaquinil, imuran, (azathioprine) and low dose prednisone, should control a lupus flare. I'm at 3 months starting to get discourage. ?

In brief: Difficult to say

It is hard to say without knowing all your labs and history.
Talk to your rheumatologist to see if your medical regimen can be adjusted.

In brief: Sle flare

Symptoms should be controlled with adequate Prednisone dose.
If you are still flaring then damage is occurring and change of therapy or addition of medication should be planned.
