Oxtriphylline uses

Oxtriphylline is a cough medicine derived from xanthine and similar to theophylline, that acts as a bronchodilator to open up airways in the lung. It antagonizes adenosine receptors and promotes relaxation of airway smooth muscles. It is also thought to inhibit phosphodiesterases leading to higher levels of cAMP and increased bronchodilation.

Indication: Used to treat the symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema.

Oxtriphylline is a bronchodilator. Oxtriphylline works in several ways: it relaxes muscles in your lungs and chest to allow more air in, decreases the sensitivity of your lungs to allergens and other substances that cause inflammation, and increases the contractions of your diaphragm to draw more air into the lungs.
