You need to stay on the meds that work, even while in remission. Often times flares get harder and harder to treat so the best game plan is to do what you have to do in order to never have another flare. It's far better to take the safer meds forever, even while in remission, than to flare over and over again, eventually having to take harsher and harsher meds every time. I believe stress was a factor in me coming down with UC but I don't think that is the only factor and can't do it all by itself, although it can certainly trigger future flares all by itself.
