Robitussin DAC (more commonly known as its generic form, Cheratussin DAC) is an exempt narcotic cold medicine, which is available in the United States in a solution. A version without pseudoephedrine is called Robitussin AC. Cherastussin DAC and AC are manufactured by Qualitest. Under U.S. federal law, up to four ounces can be purchased within a 48 hour period without prescription, provided the purchaser is at least 18 years of age, sign a log book, and provide identification if not known to the pharmacist. However, many states nonetheless prohibit sale without prescription, or have restrictions on purchase. For example, New Jersey law specifies that a person can purchase no more than 4 four ounce bottles per year. Some states permit the sale of no more than two ounces at a time without a prescription. Even in states that allow purchase without prescription, the drug may be very difficult to purchase without one as pharmacists can and do exercise pharmaceutical discretion, and very commonly decline to sell the drug without prescription.
