Theophylline discontinued

I have been told that theophylline er is being discontinued. Is this true? I have taken it for years for asthma. ## Hello, Terri! How are you? I've not found anything about it being discontinued. Where you told that by a pharmacist or did it come from some other source? There were a couple that were discontinued back in 2003, due to the fact that it's rarely prescribed, anymore. 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 bac...

Doxophylline 400mg

kindly tell me that whether doxophyline increses the pulse rate and BLOOD pressure. thank u, Baldev kumar ## Doxofylline is basically a xanthine derivative like theophylline. All xanthine derivatives have the effect on heart rate and pulse rate because of their affinity towards adenosine receptors (A1 & A2 receptors, which are present in heart to regulate the oxygen demand, in brain involve in hormone secretions, in skin, also in some other parts of body.) When these receptors are stimulated they effect on heart rate and increase the blood pressure and palpitation. Doxofylline is found to have the very least affinity for adenosine receptors, and this is the basic difference between doxofylline and other xanthine derivative specially theophylline, and this is because of its chemical ...

The cardiologist gave him Sandoz Theophylline 200mg, Plenish K, Cortaject, Angised, I found out what the rest is for {Pulmison, Purgoxin. Spiractin} but couldn't find anything on the 1st 4 pills.

The FDA does warn that potassium supplements can be very rough on the stomach, so h...

what's the risk of psychosis with therapeutic doses of solphyllex

i have had 2 patients develop first time psychotic symptoms within 24hrs after taking solphyllex for common cold .they have no prior psychiatric history and negative family history of psychiatric illness.there is no history of substance abuse save for occasional beers.the first patient suffered recurrent psychotic attacks long after the solphyllex was withdrawn.i know theophyllin may cause CNS stimulation but why is this becoming common at usual therapeutic doses? ## I am a member of the public, not in the medical field, but I experienced what my doctor referred to as "a trip" after taking Solphyllex.
