Robitussin Ac Dosage
I got pneumonia and doctor prescribed me robitussin ac but not working much. Is it ok if I switched to Robitussin Dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan). What is the difference in dm n a?
DM has: dextromethorphan which is a cough suppressant. AC just means there is codeine included, a narcotic suppressant. Pneumonia needs to be treated with antibiotics and expectorant, along with anti-inflammatory medicines. You can take the DM but it is unlikely to be more effective than with codeine. You can try a formulation with Hydrocodone like Tussionex or TussiCaps. ...Read more
Was diagnosed with severe bronchitis. Is it safe to take Robitussin (guaifenesin) AC at 34 weeks gestation? Dosage is 2tsp every 6 hours as needed.
NOT recommended: Robitussinac contains category c drugs: Codeine and guaifenesin. However, like other narcotics, Codeine rapidly crosses the placenta. Neonatal Codeine withdrawal has occurred even in infants whose mothers were taking Codeine at cough suppressant doses for as little as ten days prior to delivery. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Just plain robitussin or +dm is better. Get well soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Time for a diagnosis: 90% of all cases of bronchitis are viral and don't require this much medication for relief. The symptoms can take a while to resolve especially if there are underlying conditions. With continued symptoms, it would be worth a "re-look" to make sure something is not being overlooked. Some possibilities are pertussis, bacterial infection not covered by azithromycin. Think sputum culture ; x-ray. ...Read more
