Uniphyllin and Oral thrush

Hi is there any connections between this medication and oral thrush?

I tend to get frequent bouts of it almost three months apart. I just wondered if there was any connections between uniphyllin at high doses and oral thrush.


  1. Hi again, sharmeen, and thanks for this post and question - it's a good one. You may be aware we cannot provide medical advice or diagnostics over the internet (for your own safety), but your concern certainly warrants a reply.
    In the most general of terms, the medication, Uniphyllin, belongs to the classification of theophylline-type medicines and, typically are not associated with thrush, as a side effect.
    However, to be absolutely certain for yourself, you may want to discuss this further with your prescribing physician and/or your dispensing pharmacist.
    Have you had this medication (Uniphyllin), prescribed for your own use?

    What do you think?
