Theophylline Pellets

Theophylline PelletsTheophylline, also known as dimethylxanthine, is a methylxanthine drug used in therapy for respiratory diseases such as COPD and asthma under a variety of brand names. Because of its numerous side-effects, the drug is now rarely administered for clinical use.

It is naturally found in tea, although in trace amounts (~1 mg/L), significantly less than therapeutic doses. It is found also in cocoa beans. Amounts as high as 3.7 mg/g have been reported in Criollo cocoa beans.

The main actions of theophylline involve:
  • Relaxing bronchial smooth muscle
  • Increasing heart muscle contractility and efficiency; as a positive inotropic
  • Increasing heart rate: positive chronotropic
  • Increasing blood pressure
  • Increasing renal blood flow
  • Some anti-inflammatory effects
  • Central nervous system stimulatory effect mainly on the medullary respiratory center.
