Theophylline injection viaflex is the name of a product that contains the active ingredient theophylline mixed in sterile dextrose 5% solution in a Viaflex bag. This is a brand of plastic bag made for intravenous (IV) administration of various fluids and drugs. This active ingredient is used to treat asthma and other lung conditions, such as emphysema and bronchitis.

The flow of more air eases the shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing of lung-related conditions.
