- Montair LC Kid comprises of two active pharmaceutical ingredients called Montelukast and Levocetirizine. This combination drug is known for treating the systemic treatment of allergic reactions such as chronic urticaria, obstructive airway diseases and rhinitis.
- Montelukast works by opposing the action of leukotriene D4 receptor that causes mucus formation, edema and contraction of smooth muscles. This way, Montelukast sodium relaxes the bronchial muscles and clears the airway passage for the facilitation of smooth breathing. It eliminates the allergy causing elements produced in the body.
- Levocetrizine works by blocking selectively H1 receptor (histamine receptor) present in our body. This way, it stops the production of allergic and inflammatory mediators which are released in response to allergy and causes discomfort. Levocetrizine has two folds increased affinity for H1 receptor than Cetrizine. This way, it helps in eliminating the unwanted allergic signs like sneezing, runny nose, itching and coughing.
- Both the ingredients when administered together have shown tremendous results in the long term treatment of persistent allergic rhinitis.
