I have to say that you're already taking one of the most dangerous drugs for COPD that I can think of, cardiac wise. Your doctor is totally correct wanting you to get off of theophylline. It can cause sudden cardiac problems too. From what I've read about Dalirest it sounds like a viable alternative for you. Rememeber they have to list every side effect that was reported more then 1% which can make it seem alot worse then it is, and it is possible you won't have any.
