Uses of Levocetirizine + Montelukast

  • Headache
  • Nausea

How Levocetirizine + Montelukast works

  • Levocetirizine reduces activity at histamine H1 receptors, inhibiting the release of other allergy-inducing chemicals. It diminishes blood flow to affected areas, relieving common seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis symptoms. 
  • Montelukast functions by obstructing substances known as leukotrienes. These leukotrienes constrict and inflame the airways in the lungs and trigger allergy symptoms. By inhibiting leukotrienes, Montelukast effectively relieves asthma symptoms, manages asthma, and mitigates seasonal allergy symptoms.
