I have been theophylline er is being discontinued. Is this true? Have taken for years for asthma. ## Hello, Terri! How are you? I've not found anything about it being discontinued.

But I've not read anything in my various resources that the current one available is being discontinued. Though, a doctor or pharmacist may, admittedly, have more updated information than I do. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## From what I've been told, all strengths of Theophylline is on back order due to ...
