Experiment and relax: If you have found that a combination of particular medications produce relief, and you can't reduce the stress, keep going with what works. You might want to reduce the dosage and frequency. Aphthous ulcers are stress related so stressing about is not going to help, but eliminating the cause of stress will probably help a lot.
