I hacve never fancie Eglonyl, an odd drug, not favoured in many other countries, but beloved by many SA doctors, especially GP. Remeron is likely to hav e been far more effective for you, as apparently it was. Its generally advised that one stay on ANY antidepressant that's working for 6 to 9 months at least, till there's a better chance that the chemistry has corrected itself enough to stay corrected, before coming off it. Then your plan for coming off the drug sounds reasonable.
Now, the fact that you "know my anxiety will come back" makes it more likely to return, though actually that need not happen at all. Maybe some CBT counselling would help, to give you the psychological tools to handle anxiety and depression well, even without meds, and to help to mprevent recurrences
