    The potential for abuse is way too dangerous to make it OTC not to mention that most health insurance plans would not pay for it anymore and it would probably be way too expensive for the average person. Look what happened to claratin, I paid $8.00 for the prescription but since it went OTC I can't afford it anymore.
