Theophyline works by dilating the bronchi and bronchioles by directly relaxing muscles around it. It decreases the pressure on tissue and also increases air flow and mucus extraction by incising the movement of cilia in the respiratory tract.

It is used in cases of asthma, bronchitis, and even heart failure and pulmonary edema.
