    Default why is Lonox (Diphenoxylate/atropine) a controlled substance?

    i have a stomach bug and my Dr. gave this to me. on the way to the pharmacy i noticed he had written the RX out on the CS pad and not the regular drug pad. why in the world would an anti-diarrhea drug be controlled? if anyone has the slightest clue, please let me know.

    Lonox just like several antidiarrheals is an opiate. Even immodium has an opiate base, just not as much as lonox.

    thanks for the info. i was unaware even immodium was an opiate. let alone lonox. i guess that does make sense though.
