Theophylline (Generic) Extended-Release Tablets for Pets

What is extended release theophylline?

Extended-release theophylline is a medication for heart disorders and asthma in pets and is especially used in cats. It works by relaxing the airways and by inhibiting the release of inflammation causing mast cells.

What else should you know about theophylline:

Theophylline can cause nausea, vomiting, headache, and insomnia. Signs of toxicity should be reported to your pet's veterinarian right away and they include persistent vomiting, cardiac arrhythmias, and seizures. Theophylline is a medication that will likely require blood level monitoring so it is crucial for you to keep all appointments with your pet's veterinarian.

  • Q:

    My Vet prescribed my 16 pound cat one 200mg Theophylline ER per day. How could this dosage be correct. EVERY place I have looked at said the dosage should be 2mg per pound 1 to 3 times per day. Wouldn't that be 32 mg per dose?

    • A:

      Extended release theophylline would be dosed higher than the regular release dosage forms that can be given up to 3 times a day. The extended release formulations release the dose over the entire day compared to regular release dose that may lasts 6 to 12 hours depending on your cat’s medical condition and the specific formulation. Many times the theophylline dose can be based on the amount of theophylline in the body. Also,the dose can vary based on the age of the cat and how the cat’s liver is working. Without the full picture of the cat’s specific condition it is difficult to determine if this dose is correct. Your veterinarian may be able to give you more information of why this dose was prescribed.

      Thank you,

      Once my pet's prescription was verified, I received it very quickly. My vet also helped me find the best price for a medicine that almost quadrupled in price since the last time I filled it.
