About Alvotrak AB 200mg/10mg Tablet

Alvotrak AB 200mg/10mg Tablet is a respiratory medication, primarily used to treat and prevent respiratory disorders like asthma attacks, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and allergic rhinitis (hay fever). Asthma is a breathing problem in which airways narrow, swell and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases that mainly include emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes). Allergic rhinitis is an inflammation of the nose caused by an allergen, such as pollen, dust, mould, or flakes of skin from certain animals.

Alvotrak AB 200mg/10mg Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Acebrophylline (bronchodilator) and Montelukast (leukotriene receptor antagonist). Acebrophylline works by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. Acebrophylline also has mucoregulating/mucolytic (dissolves thick mucus and helps relieve breathing difficulties) and anti-inflammatory properties. Montelukast blocks the leukotrienes (chemicals released in response when a body comes in contact with an allergen), thereby reducing inflammation and swelling in the nose. It also inhibits bronchoconstriction (narrowing of airways in the lungs that lead to breathing difficulties) and is used in treating asthma and allergic rhinitis. 

Your doctor will advise the dose and duration of the course based on the severity of your disease. The common side effects of Alvotrak AB 200mg/10mg Tablet include headache, sore throat/cough, vomiting, upset stomach, diarrhoea, heartburn, runny nose, rash, itching, drowsiness, restlessness, abdominal pain (stomach pain), and nasal inflammation. Most of these side effects of Alvotrak AB 200mg/10mg Tablet do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, please reach out to your doctor.

Alvotrak AB 200mg/10mg Tablet is not intended for use during an acute asthma attack. Your doctor may suggest other medications for your sudden asthma attack. Please inform your doctor in advance if you have heart, liver, kidney and lung diseases, seizures (fits) and depression, phenylketonuria (birth defect caused by the build-up of an amino acid called phenylalanine in the body), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), high blood pressure, stomach ulcers and viral infections before taking Alvotrak AB 200mg/10mg Tablet.
