As a rule, if you developed fibro-related deficiencies that were corrected or helped by certain supplements, you will likely always need to take those supplements. I have my patients try for the lowest effective maintenance dose.
Many of my patients have tried to go off certain supplements and then realize that they need them again. Once they resume the supplements, they usually get the benefits again. Certainly some patients go off and stay off without any noticeable change either way in their fibro symptoms.
I believe the managment of supplements long term is something you and you doctor should discuss together.
