I take thyroid medicine daily because I no longer have a thyroid except a remnant left behind after surgery and recently my medicine was slightly increased. I'm excited for that increase because I hadn't noticed how sluggish I had become!
Lamotrogine for bipolar depression, I started having symptoms in highschool and anti depressants never lasted long and I hated the side effects, thankfully I was diagnosed correctly because this med has no side effects and has worked fine for about 10 years now.
I take ambien for sleep but I think I just need to work out and exercise because im not very active in my daily routine and lately I've been drinking sodas again so that needs to end.
That seems like a pretty good reason to take a daily medication.
Personally I don't want to be on any medicine for the rest of my life but if the choice was that or die I'd take the medicine. I've crossed swords with a few doctors whose response to just about everything is "you should be on a medication for that" because my first port of call is to fix things with lifestyle changes rather than drugs. But of course not everything can be fixed with a lifestyle change.
I take daily medication for several health conditions. Hypothyroid, cardiac conditions x 3, allergies as well as several supplements to boost the immune system. Heredity and the type of cancer I had 17 years ago put me at a higher risk for the cardia conditions.
