    The doctor asks me why I stopped using the topical medicals he gave me. I reply with:

    I didn't see it as being helpful so I stopped using all medications completely.

    Would a native speaker say this?

    What about what I said? Does it make sense or does it sound funny or strange? Can it be used.

    "I didn't see it as being helpful" might work if you were given the medication but decided not to even try using it. It suggests that your opinion was that it wouldn't help. Once you'd tried it, it's more natural to say that it didn't work or that you didn't experience any benefits from it.
