Ansimar: Doxofylline, a newer generation to theophylline, an old medication for asthma, used nowadays as an adjunct treatment for asthma, not the main treatment, besides it can interact with other medications she is on. Your best option is to have your mother get seen and followed up by an asthma specialist or a chest specialist, good luck
