Prescription Fraud Advisory-Promethazine with Codeine

The Board of Pharmacy has received reports of fraudulent electronic prescriptions for promethazine with codeine throughout the state in the name of a Columbus-based physician assistant.

To help combat these fraudulent prescriptions, it is strongly recommended that pharmacies verify promethazine/codeine prescriptions with the practitioner’s office by means other than the phone numbers provided on the prescriptions. Additionally, pharmacies and/or pharmacists should report all incidents of prescription fraud to the Board of Pharmacy and local authorities. Reports to the Board of Pharmacy may be filed online by visiting: www.pharmacy.ohio.gov/complaint.
