Uniphyl is a medication that doctors prescribe to make breathing easier for patients with bronchial asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary emphysema, chronic bronchitis and related bronchospastic disorders.
Doctors prescribe Uniphyl to control the symptoms of emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Although this medication is not a cure, Uniphyl helps patients manage their symptoms and improve the quality of their lives.
The generic ingredient in Uniphyl is theophylline, which belongs to a class of medications called bronchodilators. As the name suggests, this medication works by relaxing the muscles in the lungs and dilating or widening the airways to make breathing easier.
You should take Uniphyl regularly each day with plenty of water, usually at dinner. It is important not to crush or dissolve the tablets because this will affect its sustained-release action.
These may not be all the side effects of Uniphyl 400mg.
You should not use this medication if you have an allergy to xanthines or theophylline, or if you have heart disease or peptic ulcers. Only use Uniphyl if you are over the age of 12 years.
This medication is a sustained-release formulation and should not be used when rapid relief is needed. Let your doctor know about any other disorders that you may have like thyroid disease or cystic fibrosis. Many medications interact with the generic ingredient theophylline, so tell your doctor about other drugs that you are taking.
You can store Uniphyl at room temperature.
Most often caused by cigarette smoking, COPD is a long-term lung disease characterized by emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Emphysema means the air sacs (alveoli) in your lungs are damaged and make it hard to breathe. With chronic bronchitis, it is difficult to breathe because the airways in your lungs become swollen and filled with phlegm. Symptoms include a cough that lasts at least three months, wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe), a cough with mucous, feeling short of breath and fatigue.
COPD symptoms like shortness of breath and fatigue may make it difficult to leave your home to fill your prescriptions. Uniphyl 400mg is available at YouDrugstore, our online pharmacy.
