Malwarebytes Premium INSTEAD of Windows Defender?

I just realized that by installing MalwareBytes Premium, it disabled Windows Defender so I'm now relying strictly on malwarebytes.

I'm somewhat uneasy about that.

Is it safe to better to use Malwarebytes Premium in always-on-mode and no Windows defender?
Or, better to use windows defender always-on and periodic manual scans with malwarebytes?

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Mikel

Neither. Windows defender is crazily unefficient and malware bytes does not do batrey decent on access checks.
