Montelukast is usually taken once a day with or without food.
Montelukast belongs to a group of medicines called leukotriene receptor antagonists.
Because of its method of operation, it is not useful for the treatment of acute asthma attacks. The safety in patients 6 to 23 months of age is supported by data from pharmacokinetic and safety and efficacy studies in asthma in this pediatric population and from adult pharmacokinetic studies. Adding plans allows you to compare formulary status to other drugs in the same class. With prolonged treatment, the adverse experience profile did not significantly change. A safety study in pediatric patients 2 to 14 years of age with seasonal allergic rhinitis demonstrated a similar safety profile see ADVERSE REACTIONS.
Treatment with Montelukast 10 mg film-coated tablets can be used as add-on therapy in patients when inhaled corticosteroids plus as needed short acting beta-agonists provide inadequate clinical control.
Ask your doctor before use if you are taking the following medications:

You can give your child medicines that contain paracetamol or ibuprofen, unless your doctor has told you not to. Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects.
