What is copd?

Cyp03350dyphylline-guaifenesin 100 mg-100 mg/15 mL Elixir
Drug Name: GUAIFEN/DYPHYLLINE-ORAL
Other Brand Names: Dilor-G, Lufyllin-GG
Uses: This medication contains 2 drugs (dyphylline and guaifenesin) and is used to treat and prevent wheezing and trouble breathing caused by ongoing lung disease (such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema). Dyphylline is similar to theophylline and belongs to a class of drugs known as xanthines. It improves breathing by opening the air passages and decreasing the lungs' response to irritants. Guaifenesin is an expectorant that helps thin and loosen mucus in the lungs, making it easier to cough up the mucus. Controlling symptoms of breathing problems can decrease time lost from work or school. This medication does not work immediately and should not be used to relieve sudden attacks of breathing trouble. If an attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler (such as albuterol) as prescribed by your doctor.
