Description

Montelukast & Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride Suspension – This suspension comes with a combination of two anti-allergic medicines; Montelukast and Levocetirizine that work together to treat sneezing, runny nose, and allergic skin associated with Hay Fever (seasonal allergy) and various allergies. Available in the market with the brand name REOKAST-L, this suspension is offered at the Best Montelukast & Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride Suspension Manufacturer, Apikos Pharma.

Working Mechanism

A leukotriene antagonist Montelukast lowers swelling and inflammation in the airways and nose by restricting the activities of a chemical substance called leukotriene.  Whereas, Levocetirizine is an anti-allergic that inhibits the activity of histamine, a chemical messenger that is naturally produced and gives rise to allergic reactions. It eases allergy symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, itching, runny nose, congestion, stiffness, swelling, etc.

Together, these medicines help in providing effective relief from allergic reactions caused due to hay fever and other allergies.
