Introduction

Deriphyllin AX Tablet SR is used in the treatment of asthma (wheezing and shortness of breath) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (a lung disorder in which the flow of air to the lungs is blocked). It relaxes the muscles of the air passages and makes it easier to breathe.

Deriphyllin AX Tablet SR is taken with or without food in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. The dose you are given will depend on your condition and how you respond to the medicine. You should keep taking this medicine for as long as your doctor recommends. If you stop treatment too early your symptoms may come back and your condition may worsen. Let your doctor know about all other medications you are taking as some may affect, or be affected by this medicine.

The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting, stomach discomfort, headache, and restlessness. If you get these, don’t stop taking it but do talk to your doctor. There are other, rarer side effects which can be serious. Talk to your doctor if you're worried about them. In general, you should be trying to avoid situations that make your asthma worse (your triggers) and try not to smoke.

Ask your doctor whether it’s safe to take this medicine if you're pregnant or breastfeeding. Before taking it, you should tell your doctor if you have any kidney or liver diseases so that your doctor can prescribe a suitable dose for you.

Benefits of Deriphyllin AX Tablet SR

In Asthma

Asthma is a condition in which your airways become narrow and as a result, breathing becomes difficult. Deriphyllin AX Tablet SR helps in easy breathing by widening your airways. It also gives relief from symptoms such as tightness in your chest, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. Regular exercise and yoga can help improve the symptoms of asthma in the long term, in addition to improving overall health.

In Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a group of lung diseases that cause breathing difficulties. COPD is caused by swelling of the airways that carry air in and out of the lungs. Deriphyllin AX Tablet SR relaxes the muscles of these airways and widens it. It also gives relief from congestion or stuffiness by loosening mucus and helping to cough out. This makes you breathe easy and gives relief from symptoms such as tightness in your chest, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. Avoid smoking and minimise your exposure to pollution, dust and fumes. Along with that, a little exercise each day can help you stay strong. Talk to your doctor about how much exercise is good for you.

How Deriphyllin AX Tablet SR works

Deriphyllin AX Tablet SR is a combination of three medicines: Ambroxol, etofylline and theophylline. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Etofylline and theophylline are bronchodilators which relax the muscles in the airways and widen the airways. Together, they make breathing easier.
