Allergic to codine & codone. Is there another cough syrup similar to take?

In brief: No

For severe cough, we may prescribe Robitussin (guaifenesin) w/ codeine.
It will help w/ cough suppression, illness pain, and insomnia. For people who do not tolerate codeine, vicotussin can be used; but that has hydro-codone, which you say you're sensitive to. That pretty much rules out the narcotics for cough suppression. You could use tessalon for great cough control, but without the sedation nor pain control.

There are other cough syrups that can help. I agree with the Tessalon Perles, also phenergan DM can be useful.
