Seeking correct drug for mother
3 Aug 2009
Aminophylline is used for: ***Treating ***active symptoms and blockage of airway due to asthma or other lung diseases such as emphysema or bronchitis. It is used in combination with other medicines.
Theophylline is used for: *** Preventing and treating *** symptoms and blockage of airway due to asthma or other lung diseases such as emphysema or bronchitis. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Albuterol is a bronchodilator that ***relaxes muscles in the airways*** and increases air flow to the lungs. Albuterol is used to treat or prevent bronchospasm in people with reversible obstructive airway disease. Albuterol is also used to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm.
I researched the Drugs.com web site and this is what I found. Now You did not indicate what problems your mom has but it really does matter what she is treated with. Make sure your mom has the best Pulmonologist in your area. I have found other doctors treating problems to their best of their ability but if it is not their field of expertise then you loose. Go to the expert first.
I lost my best friend last Thursday because for many years she did not get the right treatment. But about two months before she died she finally got the right doctor, then it was too late.So go for the best first.
Best Wishes and keep asking questions.
