Cidophylline is a derivative of theophylline having similar pharmacological action. It has two distinct actions in the airways of patients with reversible obstruction which are:
- Smooth muscle relaxation (i.e. bronchodilatation) which is mediated by inhibition of phosphodiesterase (PDE).
- Suppression of the response of the airways to stimuli (i.e. non-bronchodilator prophylactic effects).

Indications & usage:

Side effects:
