COPD Home > Theophylline
Theophylline is a prescription medicine that is used for the treatment of airway spasms caused by asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is available in several different forms, including capsules, tablets, an elixir, and an injection. Theophylline works by causing muscles around the airways to relax, which helps to improve breathing. Side effects of the medication can include headaches, vomiting, insomnia, and nausea.
