Apo-Montelukast general information

What is Apo-Montelukast used for?

Apo-Montelukast tablets 10mg are used for treatment of asthma in adults and adolescents age over 15 years, for management of chronic asthma, to help prevent day-time and night-time symptoms, including coughing, wheezing and tightness of the chest; also exacerbations of asthma, but not to treat asthma attack.  Apo-Montelukast tablets 10mg can be used in addition to other asthma medications, including inhaled corticosteroids and bronchodilators.  Apo-Montelukast tablets 10mg are also used as prophylaxis to prevent exercise-induced asthma.  Apo-Montelukast 10mg are also used to treat seasonal allergy to pollen (hay fever), and perennial allergy, such as to animal fur, mould and house dust mites.  Both forms of allergy can cause allergic rhinitis with symptoms including nasal congestion, runny itchy nose, sneezing, tearing, itchy, red, and puffy eyes and problems sleeping.   

How does Apo-Montelukast work?

Apo-Montelukast tablets 10mg contain montelukast sodium, which is a selective and orally active (can be taken in tablet form) leukotriene receptor antagonist that is used to prevent leukotriene-mediated inflammation in asthma and allergic rhinitis.  Leukotrienes are chemicals produced by inflammatory cells like mast cells and eosinophils that are found in the airways and mediate the inflammatory responses.  Montelukast in Apo-Montelukast tablets 10mg binds to specific receptors for the cysteinyl leukotrienes (LTC4, LTD4, LTE4) on the cells of the airways, including smooth muscle cells and also macrophages, which inhibits the action of leukotrienes.  In asthma leukotriene-mediated effects cause bronchoconstriction (narrowing of the airways), inflammation, swelling and mucous secretion.  In allergic rhinitis leukotrienes are released in the nasal passages after exposure to an allergen like pollen or house dust mites and cause irritation and inflammation.  Apo-Montelukast tablets 10mg help prevent bronchoconstriction, mucous secretion, vascular permeability, and eosinophil recruitment to relieve symptoms of asthma and allergic rhinitis.
