hi ,
it is good to see that your liver stiffness is normal and DNA is negativet.Hbs ag quantification 0000? means zero??.it is difficult to advise to stop please contact a gastroenterologist with all the reports since 2008 as stopping these medications will be a tough call basing on these one time test reports.please ask your family members to go for hepatitis B vaccination if they are HBsAg negative.
have a good day,bye.
