    Dear colleagues. It has become imperative that I remind you severally of the need to be cautious and ensure adequate measures are taken when dispensing drug products containing codeine or codeine like drugs. These group of drugs are now classified as prescription only medicine, thus necessitating that a patient brings prescription before it is dispensed. Please you should not under any guise dispense more than 1 bottle at a time unless it is expressly stated on the prescription in which case not more than 2 bottles of 100ml is acceptable to be dispensed. This caution is coming on the heel of recent activities of Police, sending some people working for them to pharmacies to buy this drug without prescription. I understand one or two of our members have been arrested on account of this matter. Please be guided accordingly.
