General Information on Uniphyl
Uniphyl is prescribed to patients suffering from respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis and emphysema. The key ingredient in the composition of Uniphyl is Theophylline, which belongs to a class of drugs known as bronchodilators. Each Uniphyl 400 mg or Uniphyl 600 mg oral sustained release tablet contains, beside the above mentioned strength of theophylline, cetostearyl alcohol, hydroxyethyl cellulose, magnesium stearate, povidone, and talc as inactive components. Those experiencing severe mucous formation, wheezing, cough and shortness of breath can buy Uniphyl online after getting a doctor’s prescription for the same.
Theophylline primarily acts on the constricted smooth bronchial muscles to relax them and increase the passage of air to the lungs. It also aids the stimulation of cardiac muscles and the central nervous system (CNS). Uniphyl has certain non-bronchodilator prophylactic effects as well.
Side Effects of Uniphyl
Every chemical that is ingested triggers a series of biochemical reactions in the body. Besides having the desired effects, most drugs often cause a variety of minor and major side effects.
Some of the minor effects that may be experienced after the use of Uniphyl are:
- Frequent urination
- Restlessness and sleeping trouble
- Mild seizures
- Chest pain
- Increased pulse
There may be other side effects of Uniphyl that are more severe in nature. The doctor needs to be consulted if any mild side effects persist or worsen during treatment. Beside these, there may be some serious adverse effects of Uniphyl. Medical attention in these cases is a must:
- Severe abdominal pain
- Vomiting, especially if it is bloody or dark
- Continuing seizures
A Uniphyl overdose may prove to be lethal. If any of the following symptoms manifest, contact a doctor immediately:
- Blurred vision
- Severe confusion
- Decreased and/or difficult urination
- Muscle cramps, pain in the limbs, shoulders etc.
- Bloody or tarry vomit
- Serious breathing trouble
The above lists do not include all the possible side effects of Uniphyl. Discussing all the possible side effects in detail with your doctor before you buy Uniphyl is recommended.
Dosage of Uniphyl
Complying with the instructions given by your doctor is compulsory for attaining the best results. Theophylline comes in the form of tablets, extended release tablets, capsules, extended release capsules, syrup, and solution. The usual Uniphyl tablet strength is Uniphyl 400 mg or Uniphyl 600 mg. The drug is meant to be swallowed whole as this ensures controlled and even absorption of theophylline in the body.
Adults, teenagers, and children (weighing over 45 kg) can take theophylline in the form of tablets up to Uniphyl 600 mg broken into smaller doses every 8 hours a day. Teens weighing less than 45 kg are generally prescribed Uniphyl 12-14mg per kg of weight per day, not exceeding 20mg per kg of weight or Uniphyl 600 mg. For adults, infants, and children below 12 years of age, a doctor’s advice is mandatory regarding the use of Uniphyl.
It is best not to decide on the dosage of this prescription drug without any prior medical consultation.
Uniphyl interacts with a number of medications. Your doctor must be notified about any medicines (both prescribed and over the counter) you are taking or whether you smoke, drink, or have a history of past or present ailments before you buy Uniphyl.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
