Official Answer by Drugs.com 5 Jul 2017

Yes, as of March 2017 Symproic (naldemedine) is classified by the DEA as a schedule II narcotic https://www.drugs.com/csa-schedule.html because it can be abused or lead to drug-seeking behavior and addiction. Although Symproic is currently a Schedule II controlled substance, the manufacturer has asked the DEA to review removing the drug from scheduling.

Symproic is an oral medication used to treat opioid-induced constipation (OIC) in adult patients with chronic non-cancer pain. Keep this medicine in a safe place to prevent misuse and abuse.
