Can promethazine with codeine be taken for sore throat and minimal cold/allergy symptoms like sneezing/runny nose?

No. This is a medication used for cough and for pain. Not for mild symptoms as you describe. It is a narcotic and should be used for the purpose and for the person it was prescribed to according to Federal law.
