|Title:||Sustained release tablet containing at least 95 percent theophylline|
|Abstract:||Non-disintegrating theophylline tablets having a pair of opposing substantially planar surfaces and a very thin cross-section have a high bioavailability on ingestion and a relatively steady release rate permitting a 12 hr. dosing interval for maintenance of non-toxic therapeutic blood theophylline concentrations. Excipients or tableting aids are not required, but trace amounts of a tableting lubricant are preferably included to facilitate continuous large scale production.|
