In brief: Methylxanthine

This class of drugs is called methylxanthines and are typically given today as oral pills.
They may improve the contractions of the diaphragm and also improve a patients response to bronchodilators like albuterol. Side effects can include nausea, vomiting, tremor and fast heart rate.
