Your present lab tests indicate that your medications control the condition as expected. It does not mean that you are cured and you still have to take the recommended medication. However, your doctor might decide in future to try to decrease the dose of the medications. But this has to be done under strict surveillance of your doctor, in order to recognize if some of the symptoms aggravate.
