Prescription Montelukast Drug Information

Leukotrienes are released from the lungs in people with asthma, causing inflammation and increased mucus production in the airways. They also cause the muscles lining the airways to contract, which narrows the airways. All of this makes it difficult for air to get in and out of the lungs. Montelukast blocks leukotriene receptors in the lungs and, as a result, blocks the actions of the leukotrienes. This prevents the excess mucus production, inflammation and narrowing of the airways and so prevents asthma attacks. It is also useful for preventing asthma triggered by exercise. Leukotrienes are also released from the nasal passages when people with seasonal allergies, such as hayfever, are exposed to substances that trigger their allergy (allergens, eg pollen). The leukotrienes contribute to the symptoms of hayfever, such as a runny or blocked nose, sneezing and itchy nose. This medicine blocks the effect of leukotrienes in the nose and so can relieve hayfever symptoms in people with asthma who also suffer from hayfever. Montelukast is used for people whose asthma is not fully controlled by using regular inhaled corticosteroids and short-acting beta agonist relievers such as salbutamol. It is used in addition to these medicines. Montelukast should be taken regularly to prevent asthma attacks. You should continue to take it even when your symptoms are under control. Adults aged 15 years and over should take one 10mg tablet once daily, in the evening. The tablet can be taken either with or without food. You should take this medicine every day, even when your symptoms are under control. Don't stop taking it unless instructed to by your doctor. If you forget to take a dose don't worry, just leave out the missed dose and take your next dose as usual. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed dose. This medicine should never be taken to treat an asthma attack because it won't work for this purpose. An asthma attack needs to be treated with a medicine that quickly opens the airways, such as salbutamol or terbutaline. These are known as relievers, and you should make sure you carry your reliever inhaler with you at all times to relieve an asthma attack if it happens. Consult your doctor if you need to use your reliever more frequently than normal, or if it becomes less effective at treating attacks, as this may indicate that your asthma is getting worse and your doctor may need to prescribe you another medicine. If you find that your asthma improves after starting treatment with this medicine, it is important that you don't stop taking any of your other medicines, in particular any corticosteroid inhalers or tablets, as this will make your symptoms get worse again. This medicine is not a substitute for corticosteroids. However, you may find that you need to use your reliever inhaler less frequently - this is fine and shows your asthma is more under control. In very rare cases, people taking leukotriene receptor antagonists have experienced a rare condition known as Churg-Strauss syndrome. Symptoms of this include flu-like symptoms, increasing breathlessness, pins and needles, numbness of the limbs or a rash. You should consult your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms while taking this medicine.
