UDF changing the rate exponent of a reaction

Hi everyone I am new here!
I have a problem that I can not solve... Perhaps there is someone who can help me out?
I am using fluent 6.3 and I am simulating the combustion of a turbulent propane flame using the RSM in combination with the EDC.
There are 5 reactions in the combustion mechanism that I am using. One of these reactions is the reverse oxidation of hydrogen where the following is valid.
Reaction: H2O -> H2 + 0.5 O2
(A=xxx, Beta=xxx, Ea=xxx)
Reaction order: [H2]^-0.75[O2][H2O]
All reactions data are implemented by the standard GUI reaction panel.
What I would like to do in the UDF is to change the rate exponent for H2 to 1 instead of -0.75, if the concentration of H2 is lower than a specified value, say 10^-5. This is to prevent the reaction rate from becoming extremely large at low concentrations of H2, which leads to convergence problems.
I have been thinking about using the macro DEFINE_VR_RATE but maybe it is not possible to use with the EDC model? Is it possible to use DEFINE_NET_REACTION_RATE instead? One other possible way could perhaps be to add the modified reaction as a 6th reaction by means of the GUI panel and then have the udf to select the "right" reaction...
Could you please give me some advise?
