Buy Uniphyl brand or generic Theophylline prescription drug from Canada
Why is Uniphyl prescribed?
Theophylline, with brand name Uniphyl, is used to prevent and treat symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive disease (COPD; chronic bronchitis, and emphysema) like chest tightness, shortness of breath, and wheezing.
What does it do?
Theophylline is classified under methylxanthines, which facilitates the relaxation and opening of the airways in the lungs to relieve and prevent symptoms mentioned above.
How should I take it?
Uniphyl is currently available as a 200mg, 300mg, and 400mg extended-release tablets (Theophylline ER) taken whole (not split, chewed, or crushed), by mouth with or without food.
The dosage strength and frequency depend on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Uniphyl?
Avoid the intake of caffeinated food or beverages like coffee, tea, cocoa, and chocolate as these could increase the side effects associated with the intake of theophylline.
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking. Discuss your current and previous medical history and any allergic reactions to Theophylline ER or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
