Montclair LC usage

Is it advisable to take Montclair LC for a long period of time? Are there any side effects? My wife has been taking the above tablets for the last year. ## Has her doctor prescribed them for her? Many people do take such tablets long-term to help control allergy and asthma issues. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and headache. Have they been causing her any problems? ## Not certain. Something is continuing to cause excess mucus. Yes this was prescribed by a doctor short term and then long term montelukast.

I am suffering from Chicken Pox

I am taking Monticope and want to know if it will help me? I have taken only one tablet so far. ## Monticope contains Montelukast and Levocetirizine, it is used to allergies. Learn more Montelukast details here. Learn more Levocetirizine details here. That said, it's not likely to help much with chicken pox, since that's not an allergic reaction, but a virus. If you want to relieve the associated itching, a topical cream or ointment that can help would most likely give you much more relief. How long have you had it? ## Its my 6th day of chicken pox. so what should i do for my disease to try some other medicine or something else. Please Help Me. ## I had chicken pox a year ago and have never let my skin heal. I scratch or dig with my nails all the time. I even do it when I am sle...

Monticope Tablet Side Effect

i use monticope when the cold came regularly .is ther any problem for using this tablet as regular ## Monticope contains Montelukast and Levocetirizine. These are both used to treat the symptoms of colds and allergies. I would suggest only using it when needed, rather than making it a regular daily regime, if thats what you mean? Side effects of Montelukast include gastrointestinal disturbances, hypersensitivity reactions, sleep disorders and increased bleeding tendency, aside from many other generic adverse reactions. Levocetirizine is called a non-sedating antihistamine as it does not enter the brain in significant amounts, and is therefore unlikely to cause drowsiness. However, some people may experience some slight sleepiness, headache, mouth dryness, lightheadedness, vision problem...

Montelukast zykast usage

I am taking montelukast zykast 10mg/5mg tablet every night as prescribed by my doctor to treat my asthma. Now, is it ok if I will let my 7 year old daughter take it because I forgot to buy her chewable tablet lately when I went to the market and it's too late for me to find out that she already consumed her chewy tabs which I bought last week and i'm worried because she's been coughing now. So I guess giving a half of this tablet is my option. Is it fine? Please help!! ## Hi since my teenage years i am taking zykast as my doctor prescribed it to me to prevent asthma. And now i just gave birth 3 months ago and i am breastfeeding. Is it okay to continue taking this tablet?
