    It can be found in common over the counter cough medications, same name brands as in UK or USA

    Cough syrup with codeine is sold in South Africa OCT (over-the-counter) and can be purchased at any pharmacy. Benylin with Codeine seems to be one of the most popular brands. - In my experience, it's effective and inexpensive.

    I hope this helped.If you need more info you should ask your pharmacist for advice.
