It's pretty simple, really. If the medication you're on is controlling your symptoms and you're content, you don't need other medications. I would urge you to consider a good probiotic, though, to replace the "good" bacteria and help keep your colon more healthy.
If your symptoms aren't controlled, then your treatment needs to be adjusted. That doesn't always mean more medications, sometimes just different ones.
