Benefits of Theophylline

In clinical studies, theophylline (brand names include Uniphyl® and Theocron®, among others) has been shown to be beneficial for treating airway spasms (called bronchospasms). Bronchospasms are most common in people with asthma, but can also occur in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
One of the primary benefits of theophylline is that it causes muscles around the airways to relax, which helps to improve breathing.
The injectable form of theophylline is also approved to treat breathing problems in premature babies.
