It is used for symptomatic treatment of wheezing.

General & Family Physician Dr. Radhika Thyagaraju's  Response
hello,
deriphyllin is a theophyllin group used in the treatment of airway diseases like asthma etc. It can also be used as an adjuvant in other respiratory diseases. It should be used only on prescription by a doctor as high doses are fatal. I hope i have answered your query. Take care

Only complaint is that I'm a chronic allergic for cold. I'll take inhaler for Asthma maximum once in a month. Am i eligible for that. If so how long to recover to lead a normal life? Is both can be done at a stretch? Is my age is a hindrance for the receiver?
Kindly answer me.
Thank You

but this the third time I was severly affected and the experience was torchous. I live in Bangalore, recently I went to Chennai were I was severely affected and on 2nd June I visited a doctor who gave me medicine and I had to return from the station on 3rd june, since I had dizziness, severe cough but not temp. I did not eat 2 or 3 days then I met my family doctor after a very long period, he advised to meet an asthma specialist and he also suggested that I may have phlum in my lungs etc.

Could you kindly advise what specialist I should meet, I am registered with St Johns Bangalore.
