What is Uniphyl?

Uniphyl is an oral medication that contains the substance theophylline. It is a sustained-release (SR) medication, meaning that the drug is released slowly into the body so that patients only have to take it once a day. Theophylline sustained-release (theophylline SR) works by relaxing muscles in the lungs and suppressing the lungs from reacting to a lot of stimuli that can make it harder to breathe. Overall, theophylline SR opens the airways and makes it easier for people with lung issues to breathe.
