Resp Od Tablet is an ethyl salt which is a theophylline analog. It has antiasthmatic and bronchodilator properties and is used for treating asthma, shortness of breath and chest tightness especially in newborns. It works by preventing phosphodiesterase enzymes which in turn causes bronchodilation, cardiac stimulation and vasodilation thereby relaxing muscles and opening air passages.
