What You Need to Know About Theophylline Treatment

General Information on Dosing With Theophylline

Following are some considerations for people taking theophylline:
 
  • Theophylline comes in various forms, some of which are taken just once a day. Others are taken several times a day.
     
  • Many theophylline products should be taken on an empty stomach (at least one hour before or two hours after a meal). It is best to take theophylline on an empty stomach, unless you are certain that it is okay to take your particular theophylline product with food.
     
  • Theophylline should be taken at the same times each day to maintain even levels of the drug in your blood.
     
  • For theophylline to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. The medication will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or theophylline dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
