The other products I haven't researched yet:

In Australia, products containing up to 10mg (12mg in New Zealand) of codeine per tablet/capsule/suppository/5ml of syrup are available over the counter. In Australia you can buy maximum of 100 over the counter tablets at the same time.

The following products contain soluble aspirin therefore making the extraction impossible (using cold water method).

Generally, you should avoid using dispersible (effervescent) tablets (thanks Juliet for reminding).
