About Levoter AM 5mg/60mg Tablet

Levoter AM 5mg/60mg Tablet is a respiratory medication used to treat symptoms associated with chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), allergic rhinitis, and respiratory tract infections, such as cough, sneezing, runny nose, and watery eyes. 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.

Levoter AM 5mg/60mg Tablet consists of two medicines: Levocetirizine (anti-histamine) and Ambroxol (mucolytic agent). Levocetirizine is an antihistamine (anti-allergic) drug that reduces the effects of histamine, a chemical substance that causes allergies like runny nose and skin rash. It is used to treat relieve symptoms, such as watery eyes, runny nose, itchy eyes/nose, sneezing, and itching and swelling caused by chronic urticaria (hives). Ambroxol is an 'expectorant' that promotes the secretion of sputum/cough. It is also a 'mucolytic agent' that makes sputum less viscous and makes breathing easier.

Your doctor will decide the dose and duration of the course based on the severity of your disease. Do not stop taking Levoter AM 5mg/60mg Tablet on your own until the doctor advises you to do so. Like every other medication, Levoter AM 5mg/60mg Tablet also has common side effects like upset stomach, dryness in the mouth, headache, fatigue, and sleepiness.
