Hello Bossbo. No. However, it does require a perscription. Regards pledge
Dear lord no, its an antihistamine.
Yes. Promethazine is a Schedule V controlled substance under the Federal Controlled Substance Act. It is often combined in a syrup with codeine, and if so, then the combination is a Schedule II controlled substance. (And by the way, it is BOTH an antihistamine AND an antiemetic).
