About MONTISOFT LC TABLET 10'S

Levocetirizine belongs to a class of drugs called antihistamine or anti-allergic. It treats sneezing, runny nose, and allergic skin due to various allergies and hay fever (seasonal allergy). An allergy is an immune system response to foreign elements typically not harmful to your body. These foreign elements are known as 'allergens.' Allergic condition varies from person to person. Some might be allergic to certain foods and seasonal allergies like hay fever, pollen or pet dander. One of the main symptoms of allergy is cough, which acts as a reflex action in the throat when mucus or foreign irritant enters the respiratory system.

MONTISOFT LC TABLET 10'S is a combination of anti-allergic drugs, consisting of two medicines: Levocetirizine and Montelukast, primarily used to treat allergic symptoms. Levocetirizine blocks the effects of a chemical messenger known as 'histamine,' which is naturally involved in allergic reactions. It helps relieve allergy symptoms such as sneezing, running nose, watery eyes, itching, swelling, congestion, or stiffness. Montelukast is a leukotriene antagonist, which blocks a chemical messenger (leukotriene) and reduces inflammation and swelling in the nose. Collectively, both of them help to improve symptoms and relieve allergic symptoms.

MONTISOFT LC TABLET 10'S is taken with or without food in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. Your dose will depend on your condition and how you respond to MONTISOFT LC TABLET 10'S. You may sometimes experience nausea, skin rash, diarrhoea, vomiting, dry mouth, headache, skin rash, and fatigue. Most of these side effects of MONTISOFT LC TABLET 10'S are temporary, do not require medical attention, and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Consume only if the doctor prescribes it. Never encourage self-medication or suggest your medicine to someone else. You should not take the MONTISOFT LC TABLET 10'S if you are allergic to levocetirizine or montelukast, have severe liver or kidney problems, or have epilepsy. Check with your doctor if you're pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking other prescribed or non-prescribed medicines.
