How do I dispose of acetominophen w/ codeine liquids, the one prescribed for children?

I've got two big bottles of it.

we waste liquid narcotics by pouring them down the drain, witnessed by another RN, and we enter our fingerprints into the narcotic system.

just flush it down the drain.

I once had a bad cough and the doctor prescribed a cough syrup with codeine. It was very effective. I had some left over and kept it for two years and used it on a future cough, because I find the usual cough syrup worthless, and I can't stop coughing and thus can't sleep.

A few times since then, I was tempted to ask doctors for cough syrup with codeine, but was always afraid they'd think I was a druggie, so I never asked.

any pharmacy should take back and dispose of drugs for you.

Codeine was once widely available without a prescription, but I don't think that that is the case today (in the US). In Israel, one can still buy aspirin/codeine or acetaminophen/codeine over the counter.

Codeine is a very effective cough suppressant, but, like all the opiates, can cause constipation. Just a little thought for those tempted by the cough-syrup sundaes......

Your local town may have a drop off center for drugs and various environmentally hazardous waste.

Don't they say not to flush drugs because they get into the water system? I always thought you're supposed to mic them with coffee grounds or similar waste and put them in he trash

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

This is true.

So what does one do when the lawyer and the doctor disagree?

I dunno, but then our water systems are chock-full of dilaudid and fentanyl.

Better than codeine.

Somehow I have absolutely no trouble believing that to be true.
