Many apothecaries and small family owned pharmacies will sell you cough syrups containing codeine.

The most prevalent non-prescription purchased cough syrup with codeine is Cheratussin AC made by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, NDC 0603-1075-54.
Each 5ml contains: 10mg Codeine Phosphate, 100mg Guaifenesin, it's sugar free and also contains 4% w/v Alcohol. Under current US law there are restrictions for how much you can purchase and for a period of time, similar to Pseudo-ephedrine.

I have seen several answers to this question and they all state that you cannot purchase codeine without a prescription. THIS IS FALSE - YOU CAN PURCHASE CODEINE WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION!
Codeine is what is known as a pro-drug. The codeine by itself has very little, if any action at all until it undergoes first-pass metabolism via your liver. An enzyme system known as the Cytochrome P450 system. Codeine is conjugated with glucuronic acid to Codeine-6-glucuronide, and 5% of the dose is O-De-methylated to Morphine. Those are responsible for the analgesia and other effects.
The popular opioid Vicodin was named as VI (roman numerals for 6) Codin (Codeine) since it is roughly 6 times stronger than codeine.
Here is a small chart of common opioids and respective strengths compared to Morphine
Dextropropoxyphene(Darvon) .05 - .07
Oxycodone(Percocet) 1.5 - 2
Diacetylmorphine(Heroin) 1.9 - 4.3
Fentanyl(Duragesic) 50 - 100
Carfentanil (Wildnil) 10,000 - 100,000 : Use for Tranquilizing Large Animals - Not for human use.
Some places that sell Cheratussin AC without a prescription in Indiana are Georges Pharmacy, (Sunman, IN - Versailles, IN - Brookville, IN), Madison Apothecary ( Madison, IN), Fagen Pharmacy (DeMotte, IN), Hooks Apothecary (Evansville, IN)

However, it does not contain the addictive narcotic side effects (such as the 'high', or analgesic effect) but mainly serves as an antitussive (cough suppressant). In high amounts it… Read More

No, Codeine is a controlled substance in every state, you must have a physicians prescription to obtain it.
No, codeine is illegal o purchase over the counter in the United States.
There are two types of prescription cough syrups that I can think of. One contains a higher dose of Codeine (Higher than what you can get over the counter) The other is called "Hycodan" - a cough syrup containing the semi synthetic opioid narcotic 'Hydrocodone' The second of these is much stronger, however they both will produce a euphoric effect.
It is an over the counter, NON-narcotic cough medicine.
It depends on what codeine was was prescribed for. It is most often prescribed for cough or pain. In ether case there are many over the counter meds for these ailments.

Generally speaking, the urge to cough can be supressed best with codeine or hydrocodone. These preperations are available in several cough supressing elixirs that can be prescribed by your physician. Over the counter medicications such as dextramathorphan are available however they are not as effective as codeine or hydrocodone. JC, Anesthesiologist
Easy go to your local dealer and ask them "yo so i heard texas skys are purple when you sip tea" then they give you the price for a dicount tell em solep don sent ya.
There is no such thing as over the counter codeine, bro
Just about any over the counter medicine would be fine. The worst is that it will make you groggy. Look also for non-groggy cough syrup that is available. These wouldn't be affected by Effexor either.
It's technically legal, but in practice it's such a pain for pharmacists that you're unlikely to find one that actually sells it. The problem is that enough people want codeine that any pharmacy willing to dispense the stuff would have lines around the block of people wanting to buy it, and there's a fair amount of paperwork involved for the pharmacist... it's simpler for them just to say "No, we don't carry it", and dispense… Read More
I heard local owned pharmacy. Large chains will not do it. If you find place, you will have to give your ID as it is controlled like sudafed, ephedra, etc. you can only buy a certain amount a month and it is only 10 mg of codiene. Cheratussin AC is the name.
Yes hydrocodone is available over the counter in Canada. Canada also sells codeine pills over the counter as well. Hydrocodone and codeine are not available over the counter in the US.
it depends, if its nyquill, then probley not a good idea ===ANOTHER ANSWER=== VICODIN (hydrocodone) is an anelgisic [pain killer]. But is also prescibed for cough. If the cough syrup in question is an over-the-counter tussin DM, then it's probably o.k. if taken in moderation. HOWEVER, you really should ask your doctor or any pharmacist (Rph). If it is prescription cough syrup, then you should be extra careful and certainly ask a pharmacist.
Yes. New Mexico allows for the sale of 1 4oz bottle of codeine (cheratussin) per 48 hours. You have to ask the pharmacist, at which point they will look at your drivers licence and write your name in a log. Not all pharmacies will sell it, so call around.

Most over-the-counter cough syrups work two-fold. First, they are a thick syrup that helps to coat the throat and ease the itching and burning. Second, they contain a chemical called "Dextromethorphan", which has a dissociative effect. Because the mind is distanced from the body, the cough-threshold is raised. Because of this effect, the chemical is abused by many recreational drug users. This is why many cough syrups will have a very bitter taste, or have… Read More
