Re: [IP] GlucoWatch

Controlled substance refers to any drug that contains narcotics or narcotic 
derived drug.  These drugs are called controlled because the pharmacies must 
account for each and every pill/capsule dispensed because of the addictive 
nature of the drugs.
Non controlled drugs require prescriptions because they can have undesirable 
effects if not taken correctly (as advised by the MD) or if mixed incorrectly 
with other meds whether it be another prescribed drug or an over the counter 
med.  Non controlled drugs do not have to be accounted for to the DEA like 
controlled drugs do. Controlled means controlled by the DEA.

Hope this helps you understand it better!
