Drugs in ATC category "R03DA04":

    - This medication is used to treat and prevent wheezing and trouble breathing caused by ongoing lung disease (e.g., asthma , emphysema , chronic bronchitis ). Theophylline belongs to a class of drugs known as xanthines. It works in the airways by relaxing muscles, opening air passages to improve breathing, and decreasing the lungs' response to irritants. Controlling symptoms of breathing problems can decrease time lost from work or school. This medication does not work immediately and... - This medication is used to treat and prevent wheezing and trouble breathing caused by ongoing lung disease (e.g., asthma , emphysema , chronic bronchitis ).

This medication does not work immediately and... - This medication contains 2 drugs ( dyphylline and guaifenesin ) and is used to treat and prevent wheezing and trouble breathing caused by ongoing lung disease (such as asthma , chronic bronchitis , emphysema ). Dyphylline is similar to theophylline and belongs to a class of drugs known as xanthines. It improves breathing by opening the air passages and decreasing the lungs' response to irritants. Guaifenesin is an expectorant that helps thin and loosen mucus in the lungs, making it... - This medication is used to treat and prevent wheezing and trouble breathing caused by ongoing lung disease (e.g., asthma , emphysema , chronic bronchitis ).
