Name of Medication: Theophylline 250 mg
Brand: Nuelin SR 250
Form: Tablets
Company: Inova Pharmaceutical
Formulary Category: Standard Formulary

Our UMMC's Pharmacy Department has received 30,000 tablets of Nuelin SR 250 from Inova Pharmaceutical.

This will be replacing our current stock by ApoTex, Theophylline 200 mg temporarily until the stocks for Nuelin SR 250 have depleted.

The recommended dose conversion as suggested by our Respiratory Specialists is as follows:

1 tablet Theophyline 200 mg = 1 tablet Nuelin SR 250
Theophylline 200mg (Apo-Theophylline) Tablet

will be temporarily substituted with its equivalent

Theophylline 250mg (Nuelin SR) Tablet
