What is theophylline anhydrous injection viaflex?

Theophylline anhydrous injection viaflex is an intravenously administered form of theophylline. This prescription drug is used to treat asthma and other lung conditions, such as emphysema and bronchitis, that make it difficult to breathe. Theophylline relaxes the muscles of the chest and lungs allowing more air to move through the air passages of the lungs. The flow of more air eases the shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing of lung-related conditions. This drug is given intravenously as an initial loading dose to establish a presence in the blood stream and to determine the proper maintenance dose.
