Montelukast Sodium Granule

Montelukast Sodium Granule is used to prevent and treat asthma. It is a prescription medicine. This medicine works by blocking the action of certain chemicals in the lungs. This action of the medicine results in prevention of swelling and narrowing of the muscles in the airways, and build-up of the fluid in the lungs. This helps is relieving the symptoms of asthma including shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. Montelukast Sodium is also used to prevent the narrowing of the muscles in the lungs due to exercise. It is also used to relieve the symptoms of an allergic response such as irritation in the eyes, a running nose and a sore throat. This medicine works by preventing the release of certain substances from the nose, which are responsible for the symptoms of allergy. Montelukast Sodium is also used to treat outdoor allergies that arise during the months when pollen levels are high. Montelukast Sodium Granule is also used to treat indoor allergies that are present throughout the year.

When not to use
Montelukast Sodium should not be used to treat an asthma attack.

Asthma

Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways. Your airways are tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the inside walls of your airways become sore and swollen. That makes them very sensitive, and they may react strongly to things that you are allergic to or find irritating. When your airways react, they get narrower and your lungs get less air.
