Hi
You are not alone. What part of the world are you in tho? I was in UK Forces for years. Medicals have differing requirements. I believe the US Army were concerned about many more medical issues/requirements than anywhere else. I think they used to require circumcision, for instance. Routine checks of this nature are for no more than a civi doctor would look at. General health, feet, eyesight, hearing, etc. What else you concerned about?

Read the pinned post at the top of the page about Medical Conditions. No-one can tell you whether you will pass the medical; you will have to wait for a decision by the doctors. The fact that you didn't take medication isn't relevant, and can't be proved; what will be considered is that you had a condition that required treatment and you were prescibed something.

Iv still got the medication here for proof if they needed it that’s what I’m saying like as if I can get propanol off the streets and put them back in the box lol

The point is that you needed treatment for a medical condition and they will go by what is in your medical records. The rules for the medical use terms like 'have not been prescribed medication in the last x years'. And there's the question of why you wouldn't take medication you have been given by a doctor.

But what’s the point in an appeal then if that’s the case it’s alright giving someone something but then if you take your tablets back and you get evidence off the doctor to say look he hasn’t took anything he’s medically okay then what else can ya do?

Don't get so focussed on the fact that you never took your medication. You had a condition that required treatment and factors like the number of episodes, the time period and the reasons will be investigated. If you read the sticky, it explains that it is up to the Armed Forces to decide if you are fit to join. Coping with day-to-day life as a civilian is very different to being in the military.
