Accolate Overview

Zafirlukast is an orally administered leukotriene receptor antagonist (LTRA) used for the chronic treatment of asthma.

Accolate

Are there any lower cost substitutes for Accolate? Anyone know when the patent on it runs out? ## I have received no replies to my inquiry. I have been trying to get Accolate from someplace other than the U.S. or Canada - India perhaps or Israel. Neither place can provide it. I since have found that (apparently) the patent runs out in September 2010. BUT I have also found that the FDA has posted (8/28/09) serious new side effects from Accolate and a couple of other drugs in the same area. I have therefore stopped taking it. I will confer with my healthcare provider about this in the next week or so.
