Active Ingredient(s): Ephedrine + Phenobarbital + Theophylline
Category: Asthma



Tedral Overview

Phenobarbital (INN) is a long-acting barbiturate and the most widely used anticonvulsant worldwide,[1] and the oldest still commonly used.[2] It also has sedative and hypnotic properties, but as with other barbiturates, it has been superseded by the benzodiazepines for these indications. The World Health Organization recommends its use as first-line for partial and generalized tonic–clonic seizures (those formerly known as grand mal) in developing countries. It is a core medicine in the...

I Have A History Of Asthma And Used Tedral In The Past But Can Never Find It Anymore Where This Medication
As stated above i have a history of Asthma and was given tedral as a child but am unable to find this product anymore. Can anyone asist me with its location?? ## try phamanabolics . net about €1 per tab .. reliable , always arrives !! ## During junior and high school, I experienced fairly chronic asthma but I was able to participate in jv and varsity football and track, lettering in both. By my mid twenties, the asthmatic symptoms had all but vanished. Now in my early sixties, I am still physically active (running, bicycling, weight training & cross-country skiing), and the asthma has returned to some degree. Over the past five years or so, I have been prescribed various inhalers (Advair, Symbicort, Albuterol, etc) which have had little or no effect. In my experien...

tedral magnified senses
I thought i was mentally unbalanced. Seeing enlargements of real life in front of me. Increased hearing sensitivity. Shrinking rooms in front of me own eyes. For years thinking it was me. An unbalanced. Self. It all stopped as i got older until one day I was having an asthmatic condition and took the medicine the doctor had me take 3 times a day! Tedral!. The truck in front of my eyes, as i worked on the engine, seemed to shrink like what happened 5 ears previously. when I was taken tedral regularly. I wasn't crazy after all--- It was the medicine! Anyone else experience shrinking heads, feelings of speed' before the term existed? Why was it taken off the market? Everyone have these problems? It would be nice to hear from others about their Tedral experience. This occurred 1952 ...

Tedral SA side effects
Some three years ago, I woke up to discover that my chest was tight and had difficulty in breathing. I consulted a Doctor who diagnosed the problem to be COPD. He thereafter placed me on Tedral SA. When I started using the drug I discovered that my genital organ shrank and could not urinate freely as I used to. I then stopped the used of the drug for a day and I discovered that I could urinate freely again. When I complained to the Doctor about this he told me that he had never heard about such complaints before and that there was no substitute he prescribed for me that I should continue to use it. Each time I used the drug it was the same side effects that I experienced. Later he gave me some other drugs and transferred me to another consultant who is a respiratory specialist. I later ...

What is the substitute of Tedral SA tablets?
I am male 55 years and consuming two tablets of Tedral SA since last 30 years. During this period, I never faced any inconvenience and attack of asthma in any type of weather or circumstances. Now this tablet is not available in market. I need good substitution to this tablet with the same ingredients. ## From what I understand, there is NO substitute for the old Tedral formulation. Tedral contained some phenobarb, which helped, but didn't really work, to neutralize the stimulant side effects of theophylline and ephedrine. Ephedrine isn't available anymore and the combo of those two drugs caused "speedy" feelings. It's more typical that you'd be prescribed a rescue inhaler for acute asthma attacks (ProAir = albuterol is common) than any oral med. Works faster wit...

tedral use as a child
I used Tedral and Tedral SA as a child. In fact I overused and became addicted so much that I would be using 3 SA a night along with 6 or more tedral throughout the day with Ventilon. I only managed to get off them when I became a speed addict. I have been clean and relapsed a few times over the years but was a heavy drinker. Now sober I have trouble concentrating, sitting still, ect....and I think I have ADHD which I probably always had but through Tedral and speed, anti depressants it's been controlled to one degree or another. I now have real problems at work at home and I have now an methods addiction. When I take it I feel calm. Am I self medicating to control my ADHD I believe so. And I also believe that long term childhood use and over use did do some damage to my brain. I ha...

Does Tedral causes blurry vision?
I had a bad case of shingles at the same time I had cataract surgery, they gave me acyclovir and have developed blurry vision. Can I use tedral for the itching? ## I had cataract surgery and developed shingles due to the stress. Now I've noticed blurry vision on the eye with the surgery? Can this be cured? ## Acyclovir is an antiviral medication, which is given because Shingles is caused by the Herpes Zoster virus. There is no way to eradicate this virus from the body, but the medication can help keep it under control and shorten the length of the Shingles outbreak. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and headache. Learn more: As to wether or not your blurry vision can be cured, that depends on what has caused it. It is not listed as a common or rare side ...

cataracts tedral
I had taken Tedral for years beginning as a child and into my adult years until taken off the market. Cataracts developed in both of my eyes while I was in my 30's and 40's leading to surgery. I now have lens implants in both of my eyes. The opthamologist is now measuring my eyes for Glaucoma. Currently I am taking Primatene mist tablets which does have the drug ephedrine as one of its ingredients. No one is telling me whether these drugs are responsible for my eye situation. Please respond ## I used this pill from the age of5 until I was about 25. I only used Tedral when my asthma was getting out of control. Without this medicene I would have more than likely died. I am looking for the pill again because all the new stuff does not work for me. When I take the new stuff , I get ...
