During junior and high school, I experienced fairly chronic asthma but I was able to participate in jv and varsity football and track, lettering in both. By my mid twenties, the asthmatic symptoms had all but vanished. Now in my early sixties, I am still physically active (running, bicycling, weight training & cross-country skiing), and the asthma has returned to some degree. Over the past five years or so, I have been prescribed various inhalers (Advair, Symbicort, Albuterol, etc) which have had little or no effect. In my experience (1960s) the most effective bronchial dilator I have ever used was Tedral Oral (25 or SA). As an athlete/student at that time, I remember absolutely no side effects whatever. I see from some of the other messages inquiries as to the availability of Tedral, which is my question. For instance is Tedral available in Canada? My thanks for your time into this inquiry.

From what I have found, it seems that Canada is the only place that still has Tedral available. It contains theophylline, ephedrine, and phenobarbital, but there can be some dangers associated with such combinations, so the FDA is generally not fond of allowing them to be sold.




Have any of you consulted your respected doctors to try to find alternatives?

If you have had asthma all your life as I did, and suffered from not only asthma but from Tedral and Primetine and the old Solution A, PLEASE DO YOURSELF one favor. Go to your doctor and lie like hell and convience him you have a yeast infection and want Diflucan. IT MAY JUST CHANGE YOUR LIFE AS IT DID MINE.

They don't perscribe it any more, because its highly addictive. I've asked doctors for it they look at me like are you nuts, don't know if its used for anything else but for asthma its not. Albutural is now.

I used Tedral in the late '60s worked good for my asthma but another use was to get out of the Vietnam war draft. My friends who got called in for a physical would take a tablet before the exam. It made their heart beat so weird that they were rejected for duty.

Well in the 60s I was taking Tedral, but addicted, find that hard to believe. I hated it. It gave me the shakes but when I couldn't control wheezing I would give in, it would take a whole day for me to stop shaking, and also get rid of the headache. Why would anyone ever want to take it is beyond me. Was so glad my doctor found something else for me and never had it again. It was AWFUL and actually made theophylline somewhat tolerable. Don't take that either.

I took tedral all thru the 60's. Made me extremely weak and would have the shakes all day; could barely control my bladder (not good in school). One doctor told us it was also very hard on the heart. Today's meds are much better and safer.

l took Tedral all my child hood in England l did not find it addictive at all, in fact it was a life saver. l now live in Australia and for 35 years have not had an attack but use Ventolin and Seritide. But since l was breathing in cement from renovations l have become very ill with Asthma, and these products do not work anymore l only wish l could get Tedral as l know this would make my life worth living as at the present time no one can seem to get me well......l wish there was something better than these puffers........l am really desperate....

Kate in California Says:

I, too was prescribed Tedral for acute asthma in the sixties when I was a child... my usage was always combined with a secondary medication called Marax, but I experienced terrible side effects such as rapid heartbeat, sleeplessness, nausea and vomiting, and hallucinations... and have suffered an irregular heartbeat which is permanent and have been told by cardiologists that this medication could actually have changed the electro conductivity of my heart muscle.. I am now almost 60 and have been on medication since my twenties to correct this defect.. but as everyone reacts differently, I am not sure if there are others out there who have experienced the same lifelong adverse effects... for those that are still interested in trying to find the drug who had good results from its usage I believe it is still available in Canada or through Canadian drug companies... if anyone out there is reading this and has also suffered heart issues after using either of these medications I would love to know!

I took Tedral for asthma since I was 3 years old (in the 1960's). It was a miracle drug at the time. I continued for over 30 years until it became unavailable. Now I suffer from increased heart rate, and chronic migraines - all started after I stopped taking Tedral. It's been almost 15 years since I stopped and I quality of life decreased almost immediately. It's like it rewired my brain somehow and it will never bounce back.

Gary Says:

Not sure if it's still available. Tedral must have saved my life multiple times in my childhood (1960's) when I had severe asthma and there were no inhalers like todays. Had to always have a couple in my pocket. But hated taking it, gave terrible shakes, like shot of adrenalin. I also recall a nightime extended release version that helped with night breathing but also made it hard to sleep and left me tired in morning. Thankfully grew out of worst problems and inhalers came along.

"No inhalers"? In the 60's? I had asthma in the 60's as well, and the inhaler I used was called ISOPRYL.

I was in the same boat as you. Tedral is highly addictive, the reason you can't find it. I was 8 years old when started using it until I was 22-23 yrs old. I was addicted went through with draws had a hard time adjusting to life without it.

In absence of tedral sa a large number of asthma patients may die, because no other medicine in medical science is as effective as tedral sa. So it is urgent and necessary to give the order for the reproduction of tedral sa by our respective health minister ji for saving a large number of asthmatic patients. Tedral sa is life for asthma patients.
