Theophylline is a methylxanthine compound that is used for the treatment of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD; chronic bronchitis and emphysema), and premature bronchodilatory effects of theophylline are useful primarily for patients with asthma because bronchospasm is a key component of that disease state.

1 The use of theophylline in patients with. In the chronic management of asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients, theophylline is now considered to be adjunctive therapy. 5,6,7, and 8 Asthma is now recognized as an inflammatory disease, and inhaled corticosteroids are considered the mainstay of therapy.

5,7 Inhaled selective β 2-agonists are used as bronchodilators in asthmatic Theophylline therapy update book. Theophylline (dimethylxanthine) has been used to treat airway diseases for more than 80 years.

It was originally used as a bronchodilator, but the relatively high doses required are associated with frequent side effects, so its use declined as inhaled β 2-agonists became more widely recently it has been shown to have antiinflammatory effects in asthma and chronic obstructive.

Leslie Hendeles, Miles Weinberger, Avoidance of Adverse Effects during Chronic Therapy with Theophylline, Drug Intelligence & Clinical Pharmacy, /, 14,Cited by: Among elderly patients receiving therapy with theophylline, eligible case patients hospitalized for theophylline toxicity and matched controls were identified.

The Global Initiative for Asthma Guidelines guidelines for asthma recommend that theophylline can be used as an add-on therapy to patients not controlled by low doses of inhaled corticosteroids but recommend long-acting β 2-agonists as more effective and with fewer adverse effects ().Several clinical studies Theophylline therapy update book demonstrated that adding theophylline to inhaled corticosteroids in.

Initiation of Theophylline therapy at a low dose with subsequent slow titration to a predetermined age-related maximum dose will significantly reduce the frequency of these transient adverse effects (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION, Table V).

In a small percentage of patients. INTRODUCTION. Theophylline was first identified as having potential for asthma as a bronchodilator in and [], but general use as a bronchodilator was not seen until the combination of theophylline and ephedrine was described in a publication [].Such preparations, often with a mild sedative added, dominated the market for oral theophylline products until.

During oral theophylline treatment, the mean (SEM) serum theophylline level at the time of maximum improvement for these 10 patients was () mg/L (to convert to micromoles per liter, multiply by ).

During intranasal theophylline treatment, the mean serum theophylline level was (). Theophylline is best absorbed by the body orally and it is rapidly distributed to the body. Side effects that may be experienced by taking theophylline include chest pain, seizures, arrhythmia, vomiting that is persistent, lightheadedness or fainting spells and shaking or tremors.

ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTION theophylline, prediction of levels Prediction of Serum Theophylline Levels Because theophyl]ine (T) has a narrow therapeutic index, serum concentra- tions resulting from previous outpatient therapy must be considered when planning intravenous (IV) aminophylline dosage in the emergency depart- ment (ED).

Sustained-release theophylline is a mild to moderate bronchodilator used as an alternative, although not preferred, adjunctive therapy with inhaled corticosteroids. Theophylline may have mild anti.

It is ironic that many of the drugs used to treat COPD have been known since antiquity, yet we are still struggling to understand their basic mechanisms and how to use them. Theophylline is the best example of this Theophylline therapy update book, although anticholinergic agents and β-agonists share this irony.

Methylxanthines have been used for centuries to treat obstructive lung disease, but in the last 20 years. The molecular formula of anhydrous theophylline is C 7 H 8 N 4 O 2 with a molecular weight of Theophylline Oral Solution USP is available as a liquid intended for oral administration, containing 80 mg of theophylline anhydrous.

Current guidelines suggest theophylline as an alternative to ICSs in children with mild persistent asthma and as an add-on therapy with a low-dose ICS in children with moderate-to-severe asthma. Patients may experience deterioration of asthma control following withdrawal of theophylline.

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

Serum Theophylline Concentration Monitoring The serum theophylline concentration should be measured immediately upon presentation, hours later, and then at sufficient intervals, e.g., every 4 hours, to guide treatment decisions and to assess the effectiveness of therapy.

Serum theophylline concentrations may continue to increase after. This study indicated that, in asthmatic patients previously receiving twice-daily theophylline therapy, switching to a daily single dose of Uniphyl maintained stable blood levels with a very low incidence of side effects and a modest improvement to FEV1 at the time of the normal serum peak of theophylline.

This study suggests that Uniphyl can. theophylline each year in the United States alone, and the actual number might run into the tens of thousands.

Drs. Lam and Newhouse point out that numerous alternatives to theophylline now exist, and in most clinical settings a well-designed regimen of inhaled drugs provides superior therapy with a high degree of safety.

The transient caffeine-like adverse reactions occur in about 50% of patients when theophylline therapy is initiated at doses higher than recommended initial doses (e.g., > mg/day in adults and >12 mg/kg/day in children beyond >1 year of age).

During the initiation of theophylline therapy, caffeine-like adverse effects may transiently alter. Theophylline is an oral medication used to treat asthma and other lung diseases.

Theophylline is derived from methylxanthine, naturally present in tea and cocoa beans. Initially used medically in as a diuretic, theophylline was one of the first drugs for asthma and COPD/emphysema (beginning in ), after its bronchodilation effects were discovered.

Theophylline also has cardiac and central nervous system stimulant side effects and can produce tachyarrhythmias. The transient caffeine-like adverse reactions occur in about 50%of patients when theophylline therapy is initiated at doses higher than recommended initial doses (e.g., > mg/day in adults and > 12 mg/kg/day in children beyond 1 year of age).

Sep. 11 (3) Hopkins ME, MacKenzie-Ross RV. Case Report: The risks associated with chronic theophylline therapy and measures designed to improve monitoring and management. Theophylline (3-methyxanthine) has been used to treat airway diseases for over 70 years.

It was originally used as a bronchodilator but the relatively high doses required are associated with frequent side effects, so its use declined as inhaled β2-agonists became more widely used.

More recently it has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects in asthma and COPD at lower concentrations. Theophylline is a bronchodilator that belongs to a class of drugs called methylxanthines used in the treatment of respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma.

Bronchodilators are the main form of therapy for. The document also recognizes the benefits of the early use of combination therapy with a long-acting beta-agonist and inhaled corticosteroid as opposed to increasing the dose of inhaled corticosteroids.

Use of leukotriene receptor antagonists and theophylline therapy as adjunct therapies is also discussed. Theophylline, also known as 1,3-dimethylxanthine, is a phosphodiesterase inhibiting drug used in therapy for respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma under a variety of brand names.

As a member of the xanthine family, it bears structural and pharmacological similarity to theobromine and caffeine, and is readily found in nature, being present in. This will be a prospective randomized double-blinded parallel group clinical trial evaluating the short-term effects of theophylline therapy on exercise duration and lung function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease already receiving both tiotropium and a long-acting beta-agonist (salmeterol or formoterol).
