I am looking for a compound noun which describes drugs/a
drug expected to be taken perpetually, such as hypertensive

In German we say "Dauermedikament". A literal translation
could be "permanent medication".

In English we might mainly think of the adverb

        to take a medication *indefinitely*

but if you want an adjective + noun I would better suggest

        ongoing medication

... the ongoing speaking to the lack of an intended stop date
