Somebody posted, within the last day or two, a picture of a bottle of Gees Linctus Cough Mixture. I'd like to purchase a bottle of the stuff - if anyone is able to consider this, please PM me for details. I'd be happy with an EMPTY bottle w/carton, if that makes this any easier for anyone. Thanks -
would an EMPTY bottle be a problem?
I would suppose that an empty bottle might be considered as having residue of the medicine.http://www.api.net.nz/brands/pharmaceuticals/pharmacy-health-cough

Doubt you can get in US or even carry it I to US. At very minimum would require prescription
Check with your pharmacy there may be something similar with prescription.
I'm convinced my mother was addicted to it at one time. She had it just inside the pantry and I often saw her taking it when she didn't even have a cough.
