Schedule III, IV, or V - drugs with an abuse risk less than schedule II. These drugs also have safe and accepted medical uses in the united States. Schedule III, IV, or V drugs include those that contain small amounts of certain narcotic and non-narcotic drugs, anti-anxiety medications, tranquilizers, sedatives, stimulants, and non-narcotic analgesics. Some examples are acetaminophen with codeine (Tylenol® No. 3), paregoric, hydrocodone with acetaminophen (Vicodin®), diazepam (Valium®), alprazolam (Xanax®), propoxyphene (Darvon®), and pentazocine (Talwin®).
