Elixophyllin is a bronchodilator. This drug functions by progressively soothing muscles in the chest and lungs. That makes the lungs to be less responsive to allergens and other triggers of bronchospasm. Elixophyllin (theophylline) is not meant for an asthma attack. For an asthma attack, mild or severe, one must use a fast acting inhaler.
