Pharmacological action

Vazodilatiruyushchy, diuretic, spasmolytic, bronkhodilatiruyushchy.

Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics


Broncholitic medicine. Chemically – etilendiaminovy salt of theophylline. Has the bronkhodilatiruyushchy effect caused by the direct running-down impact on smooth muscle fibers of respiratory tracts and vessels of lungs. It is caused by the selection suppression of activity of phosphodiesterases that leads to increase in intracellular maintenance of tsAMF.

Reduces hyperreactivity of respiratory ways by means of the unknown of the mechanism so far. There are data that Aminophyllinum increases quantity and activity of T-suppressors in blood.

The mukotsiliarny clearance increases, strengthens reduction of a diaphragm, stimulates work intercostal respiratory and muscles, activates a respiratory center, improves its sensitivity and strengthens alveolar ventilation that leads to lowering of weight and frequency rate of episodes of an apnoea. Regulating respiratory function, improves saturation by oxygen of blood and lowers concentration of carbonic acid. Stimulates ventilation of the lungs against a hypopotassemia.

Exerts the activating impact on cardiac performance, increases force and frequency of heartbeat, increases a cordial blood stream and strengthens need of heart for oxygen. Lowers a tone of vessels of a brain, integuments, kidneys. Has peripheral venorasshiryayushchy action, reduces vascular resistance of lungs, reduces pressure in a pulmonary circle of blood circulation. Stimulates a renal blood stream, possesses moderate diuretic action. Expands bilious ways out of a liver.

Stabilizes walls of mast cells, slows down release of mediators of reactions of hypersensitivity. Slows down pasting of thrombocytes, increases stability of erythrocytes, lowers a thrombogenesis and regulates microcirculation.

Shows epileptogenic action in high doses.


In a body of the person Aminofillin it is metabolized with release of untied theophylline.

Linkng of theophylline with proteins of a blood plasma makes 40%. Drug gets through a placental barrier and is removed with breast milk.

Theophylline is transformed in a liver with the participation of a number of important enzymes of P450 cytochrome, the basic from them is CYP1A2 isoenzyme. In the course of chemical transformations 1,3-dimethyl uric acid and 3 methylxanthine are formed 1-metilmochevaya-. These derivatives are removed with urine. In an original form about 10% are brought.

Considerable specific features of speed of hepatic transformation of theophylline are the reason of strong variability of values of clearance, content in plasma, semi-removal time.

The elimination half-life at the non-smoking patients having bronchial asthma reaches 12 hours, at smokers – 4 hours, at children fluctuates from 1 to 5 hours, at newborns can proceed about two days.

Indications to use

  • Parenteral administration is used at: the asthmatic status, an apnoea of newborns, ischemic disturbance of cerebral blood circulation, the left ventricular failure (complicated with a bronchospasm and disorder of breath), hypostases of renal genesis, acute or chronic insufficiency of heart.
  • Oral administration is used at: a bronkhoobstruktivny syndrome of a various etiology (for example, bronchial asthma, emphysema of lungs, HOBL, obstructive bronchitis), a pulmonary heart, increase in pressure in a pulmonary circle of blood circulation, a night apnoea, heart failure on acute or chronic type.


Expressed arterial hyper - or hypotonia, stomach ulcer or a duodenum, tachyarrhythmias, severe damages of a liver or kidneys, hyperacid gastritis, epilepsy, a retinal apoplexy, a hemorrhagic stroke, sharing with ephedrine at children, age till 3 flyings, for the prolonged peroral forms age limit till 12 flyings, a sensitization to Aminophyllinum and theophylline.

Side effects

  • Reactions from TsNS: sleep disorders, dizziness, tremor, concern, spasms.
  • Reactions from the blood circulatory system: disturbances of a heart rhythm; at fast intravenous administration – developing of heartaches, pressure decrease, tachycardia, a cardialgia, aggravation of a course of stenocardia.
  • Reactions from system of digestion: gastroesophageal reflux, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, diarrhea, aggravation of a peptic ulcer, anorexia.
  • Reactions from urinogenital system: hamaturia, albuminuria.
  • Allergic reactions: itch, rash, fever.
  • Reactions from a metabolism: hypoglycemia.
  • Local reactions: a hyperemia, consolidation, morbidity in the field of an injection.
  • Other reactions: a tachypnea, a stethalgia, inflow, an albuminuria, a hypoglycemia, a hamaturia, strengthening of a daily urine, the strengthened sweating.

Application instruction of Aminophyllinum (Way and dosage)

The scheme of administration of drug more often individual, is developed depending on age, a clinical picture, indications, existence of nicotine addiction.

Perhaps intravenous or intramuscular administration. The adult enter intravenously slowly — on 240 mg one - twice a day. To children enter intravenously or intramusculary: age till 3 months — 30-60 mg, 4-12 months — 60-90 mg, 1-3 years — 90-120 mg, 4-7 years — 120-240 mg, 8-18 years — 240-480 mg a day in two-three injections.


About cases of overdose there are no messages. If the similar state after all arose, it is recommended to stop administration of drug and to begin symptomatic therapy.


At combined use to sympathomimetic means there is mutual an activation of pharmacological action. With drugs of lithium and beta adrenoblockers – action on the contrary is mutually weakened.

Intensity of effect of Aminophyllinum decreases at simultaneous use with Rifampicin, Phenobarbital, the Isoniazid, Sulfinpyrazonum, Carbamazepine, Phenytoinum, and also at smokers.

Force of action of Aminophyllinum can increase at simultaneous use with Linkomitsiny, hinolona, macroleads, Allopyrinolum, Cimetidinum, beta adrenoblockers, izoprenaliny, fluvoksaminy, Disulfiramum, oral contraceptives, Viloksazin and at antiinfluenzal vaccination.

Derivatives of xanthine potentsiirut the hypopotassemia caused by action of corticosteroids, agonists beta 2 - adrenoceptors and diuretics.

Antidiarrheal means and enterosorbents lower adsorption of Aminophyllinum.
