Generic Theo-24 (Theophylline 400 mg) guide:
What are Theo-24 pills?
The active substance of the medication you can now buy as Theo-24 was first found in natural substances in the nineteenth century. However, it was first made into tablets in 1980. First it was used as a diuretic and currently, the medication is utilized for the treatment of obstructive respiratory tract diseases such as bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
Since the exclusive patent of the pills’ inventor had already expired, the same medicine can be found also under other names such as Theoday, Tefamin, Teonova, Tesona, Theobid, Theocin, Theodel, Theolix, Unifyl, Xanthium, and many others. These are so-called generics, i.e. the medicines that appeared after the original medication but that correspond to its formula and effect. They are usually cheaper than the branded drug. You can find them if you look for a way to buy Generic Theo-24.
When can your doctor prescribe you to use Theo-24?
The medication is used to prevent bronchospasms, i.e. the obstructions of the airways caused by the narrowing of the respiratory channels or narrowing of the bronchi caused by the contraction of muscles in response to a number of factors. This can happen in a number of diseases, so your doctor can appoint you to buy Theo-24 if you are diagnosed with bronchial asthma, asthmatic status, obstructive bronchitis, emphysema, nocturnal apnea, and other conditions.
Please pay attention that the same conditions are treated by a variety of medications. It is important that a specialist assesses your condition and chooses the optimal therapy for you.
How do Theo-24 pills act?
The effect of the medication is achieved through the binding to adenosine receptors. It also suppresses phosphodiesterase, stabilizes cyclic adenosine monophosphate and diminishes the level of intracellular calcium. Doing this, it contributes to the relaxation of the smooth muscles of bronchi and diminishes the level of allergy mediators in the blood. Besides, it elevates the tone of the respiratory tract muscles, contributes to the widening of the blood vessels and thus lowers the blood pressure. The medication betters blood oxygenation, and prevents platelet aggregation.
After the oral intake, the pills are quickly absorbed. The bioavailability of the medication is 90%. The maximum level of the active agent in the blood is achieved within two (regular pills) or six (extended release) hours.
The medication undergoes biotransformation in the liver with the disintegration to the inactive metabolites. It is excreted mainly by the kidneys and partially penetrates into the breast milk.

The biotransformation of the medication is accelerated by the use of phenobarbital, xanthines, and cigarettes smoking.
Broncholytic activity is diminished by the use of beta-adrenoblockers.

The effects of those interactions can be pharmacodynamic, i.e. the action of Theophylline or other medications used simultaneously alters or adverse reactions occur without an alteration in the level of Theo-24 in the blood.
