Tedral For Asthma


as a child I had Asthma and took Tedral all through the 60s now at 68 Asthma returned about 10 yrs ago after 40 years of no asthma. I have been on a Z pack A steriod A abrutol inhaler A symbocort inhaler and day 11 it's still pretty bad. I need my old medicine I can't breath. Tonight I thought of Tedral. What can I use in its place?

Hello, Vicki! How are you?

Are you seeing a pulmonologist? That would be your best resource for finding the help you need.

Tedral contained Theophylline, Ephedrine and Phenobarbital, all of which are still available separately, in case you want to ask your doctor about trying them.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of these medications as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and headache.

I remember using tedrol as a kid too and it worked really well for my asthma. I too wonder why we can't get it now. I have had trouble with my asthma for years and only found real relief with tedrol
