Do you stop taking your prescribed meds the day you feel better?

Most doctors agree that their patients stop taking their prescribed meds the day they feel better. Are you sometimes in this situation?

even if i am in medical, i tend to stop taking meds after i feel better. Its because im stubborn when it comes to med taking.

BRIEF(True Story About Me): I had a Staff Infection(virus), I don't know if you know what that is, but I was told that it is on your skin and if you get in you its real bad. Well I did get this, prier to this I had fallen super hard from playing valley ball with a huge valley ball, weight twisting, and then I went to doctors and told me I would be ok and that it wasn't staff but some muscle thing, after about 3 days I could not get out of bed, the pain was so powerful, (it was in my right butt hip), and was stopped there because, I fell on it and such, finally I was picked up with bed sheets, because I could not stand, and rushed to ER, and took a couple of days to figure what was wrong, there was lots of tests, and my mom was very worried, finally after super pain-full days, I had surgery to get it out, it was still pain-full after since I got cut open and stapled butt shut, but I had to start training to walk again, but after I went home I still had to take antibiotics from a tube they had in my right arm, to make sure I get it all out of me, but after that I was very glad I dint have to take any anti-biotic's again!
