Our unannounced inspections identified that appropriate safeguards were not always in place to ensure sales were managed safely and appropriately. There were often insufficient controls to prevent repeat sales or to identify trends in requests. In some cases, repeat sales were even made knowingly to the same people.

“Opioids are a high-risk medicine with potential for abuse. We know that across Great Britain most pharmacies and professionals have appropriate safeguards in place in order to prevent them being misused and to provide patients with safe patient-centred care. Over the course of one year we have taken swift and robust action against 36 pharmacies and a superintendent pharmacist who were found not to have these safeguards in place.
“People requesting codeine linctus can be well-rehearsed, believable or aggressive and will often exploit shift patterns, relying on poor handover or communication between shifts. We are asking pharmacy owners and professionals to remain vigilant and ensure controls are in place to prevent repeat sales or to identify trends in requests.”

For many, the search for an online pharmacy to fill a prescription is legitimate, a way to manage the high costs associated with the drug, or an effort to avoid the physical effort that comes with going to a pharmacy and standing in line to get a prescription.
For some, however, the search for online sources for codeine is a way to circumvent laws that would prevent abuse of the drug. Some might:
Try to use a fake prescription to get their medication
Seek to fill a codeine prescription online that was already filled in person
Attempt to get more codeine than they have a prescription for.
Buy as much codeine as they can get with the goal of selling it.
