I was in a similar situation, a long term remission on 6mp and remicade simultaneously. Doctor said quit 6mp cold-turkey. I decided to drop my dose more slowly over about 8 months. Taper a bit, hold for a couple months, taper again, repeat until off. As a change in dose takes 6-8 weeks to have an affect. I figured if my symptoms regressed during my taper, then I could return to the full dose.
Generally, it takes a lot more meds to initially attain a remission than to sustain it.
