How To Use
  • Aminophylline works best when taken on an empty stomach one hour before or two hours after meals.
  • If stomach upset occurs, it may be taken with food.
  • Long acting capsules and tablets must be swallowed whole.
  • Crushing or chewing them may destroy the long action and increase the possibility of side effects.
  • If capsules are too large to swallow, open the capsule and mix the contents with jelly or applesauce and swallow without chewing.
  • Aminophylline works best if a constant level is maintained in the body.
  • Do this by taking doses at evenly spaced intervals.
