I'm having problems getting my prescriptions filled at cvs because the pharmacist doesn't feel comfortable filling it. I have been prescribed promethazineDM for over a year now but my allergies have been so bad I had to start getting the codeine instead of the DM. The pharmacist said that I have been prescribed the medication too much but this is only my 3rd prescription with the codeine and they all have only been 4oz each. The last time I had it filled at cvs has been over a month ago and they still won't fill it because they said I need refills or a bigger amount instead of bringing a new script every couple of weeks.. can someone please give me any advise it would be greatly appreciated.

Codeine is an opiate narcotic, it is used to alleviate pain and will not actually do anything to alleviate allergy symptoms, that might be why your doctor is reluctant. It's extent in such medications is used to help relieve coughing.

The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

Have you informed your doctor of the problems you're having? They may need to contact your pharmacy to give authorization.

Have you tried a different pharmacy?
