Mucolytic & Antiallergic


Controls allergy, controls airway infammation

Leukotrienes are a group of naturally occurring chemicals in the body that promote inflammation in asthma and seasonal allergic rhinitis and in other diseases in which inflammation is important (such as allergy). They are formed by cells, released, and then bound to other cells that cause inflammation. It is the binding to other cells that stimulates the cells to cause inflammation. Montelukast works in a manner blocking the binding of some leukotrienes to the cells that cause inflammation.



• Perennial/seasonal respiratory allergy
• Allergic rhinitis
• Allergic asthma
• Bronchospasm (narrowing of airways)  




It is long-acting antihistamine. It is used to treat the symptoms caused by histamine. Histamine is a chemical that is responsible for many of the signs and symptoms of allergic reactions. Histamine is released from histamine-storing cells (mast cells) and then attaches to other cells that have receptors for histamine. The attachment of the histamine to the receptors causes the cells to be "activated," releasing other chemicals which produce the effects that we associate with allergy. It blocks one type of receptor for histamine (the H1 receptor) and thus prevents activation of H1 receptor-containing cells by histamine. Desloratadine does not readily enter the brain from the blood and, therefore, causes less drowsiness (sedation).




• It is used for the treatment of allergies and chronic urticaria (hives) in adults and children 6 months of age or older.

• Swelling of the lining of the nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes.

• It is also used for the treatment of asthma, seasonal allergic rhinitis, and prevention of exercise induced bronchospasm (narrowing of airways).
