If a patient requests a partial filling of her Tylenol with codeine #3 prescription, what can the pharmacist do for the patient?

A The pharmacist may provide the patient with the requested amount but can give her the balance only if there is a refill indicated on the prescription.

The Controlled Substances Act allows for the partial filling of a Schedule III to V medication at the request of the patient. The remaining balance of medication can be dispensed only if the physician has indicated a refill on the prescription. The total number of units of medication or refills cannot exceed what is indicated on the prescription.
