One of my Dr's wants me to stop Theophyline. Due to the heart being so irregular. Thanks & God Bless. I am in the last stages of COPD.
Like you, I am in the final stages of COPD. I was taking Theo-24 for many years and it helped me breathe. I started having problems with my pulse, and was told to stop the Theo. I did not have high blood pressure, just a real high pulse. Well, even without the Theo-24 my pulse did not go back to normal and I am now taking Metoprolol for that, with very little success. Anyway, I found several substitutions for Theophylline online, i.e. slobid, Theodur, Theo-24, theolair, but you really need to check with your doctor. These pills can be d angerous if not taken as prescribed.
I want to say feel better soon, but I know from my own experience how that goes.
