Doxofylline is used to treat bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory diseases associated with bronchospasm (tightening of airways).
Doxofylline relaxes the smooth muscles of the airways by blocking the release of certain enzymes (phosphodiesterase) in the respiratory tract that triggers narrowing. As a result, it widens the airways, allows the air to pass through more freely and makes breathing easier.
