How it Works?

Montair LC features a combination of Levocetirizine and Montelukast. These two salts come together to relieve allergic symptoms. Here’s how this medicine works:

Levocetirizine is an antiallergic medicine, which works by blocking histamine i.e., the chemical messenger responsible for causing sneezing, runny nose, and other allergic symptoms. It thereby helps in reducing inflammation and reduces the severity of the symptoms.

Montelukast: Montelukast blocks leukotriene, another chemical messenger which decreases inflammation and helps in relieving symptoms.
