Theophylline: Guaifenesin
  • Ronald J. Tallarida


Theophylline, a bronchodilater, acts by direct relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle. It is also a coronary vasodilator, cardiac stimulant, skeletal muscle stimulant, central nervous system stimulant, and diuretic. Guaifenesin increases respiratory tract secretions, possibly by stimulating the Goblet cells.
