Is Apriso a Life Long Treatment or Temporary for UC?

I was diagnosed with UC and have been taking Apriso and just finished the predisone. What a relief. The question I have is: Do I have to take Apriso the rest of my life or can I just take them when I have an attack? I'm new at this and don't like meds and it is breaking my budget.

My Support Groups:
You don't have to be on any drug indefinitely but moderate to severe IBD generally requires maintenance drugs. Some people with mild IBD can get by just having drugs during a flare. I don't recommend that approach and most gastros will not be down with that either.
