Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease.Once you get remission a maintenance therapy should be continued not to get a further attack.Discontinuing of the drug should be done only by the permission of your treating doctor.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
