Uniphyl How to Take

Uniphyl (Theophylline) belongs to the class of medications called bronchodilators. It is used to treat respiratory conditions such as Asthma, emphysema, and chronic Bronchitis. It relaxes the muscles in the lungs, which opens the airways. This helps to relieve symptoms associated with breathing problems such as cough, wheezing, and shortness of breath.

Uniphyl (Theophylline) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Uniphyl (Theophylline) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Uniphyl (Theophylline) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Uniphyl (Theophylline) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Uniphyl (Theophylline), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Uniphyl (Theophylline) without consulting your doctor.

Uniphyl Dosage

The dose of Uniphyl (Theophylline) sustained release is determined based on individual needs and may vary depending on the specific product used. Your doctor will adjust your dose depending on your response to the medication and the levels of Uniphyl (Theophylline) in your blood.

Uniphyl (Theophylline) sustained release is taken once daily, generally in the evening. It should be taken with food or within 2 hours of a meal, to make sure that the medication is properly absorbed by the body. Swallow the tablets whole with 120 mL to 180 mL of water. This ensures the medication reaches your stomach quickly.

Tablets may be cut in half if there is a score line on the tablet, but do not crush, chew, or dissolve the tablets when you are taking them. Uniphyl (Theophylline) sustained release tablets that are not swallowed whole release the medication too quickly and may cause serious side effects.

Do not use Uniphyl (Theophylline) to relieve sudden breathing attacks. It would take too long to start working.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Uniphyl (Theophylline) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose and remember within 6 hours, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is 6 to 18 hours after your missed dose, take ½ your dose and then continue with your regular schedule. If it is less than 6 hours until your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Uniphyl (Theophylline) at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Kidney function: Kidney Disease or reduced kidney function may cause Uniphyl (Theophylline) to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Uniphyl (Theophylline) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Uniphyl (Theophylline), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Your doctor may ask you to have your blood tested to check your blood levels of Uniphyl (Theophylline). It is very important to keep these appointments, to make sure that you are not receiving too much medication.
