From my knowledge the "AC" in Pepcid AC means that formulation or strength of famotidine is available over the counter.

Pepcid (famotidine) is a prescription medicine (because of strength, etc.).

I'm taking Pharmacology now. It specifically mentions Pepcid AC. The AC does NOT mean over the counter. The books says it's the Latin phrase ante cibum wich means before meals. I found this thread while trying to find the answer before I read the next page .
