Montelukast Mylan general information

What is Montelukast Mylan used for?

Montelukast Mylan chewable tablets 5mg are used for treatment of asthma in children age 6 to 14 years, for management of chronic asthma, to help prevent day-time and night-time symptoms, including coughing, wheezing and tightness of the chest; also to prevent exacerbations of asthma, but not to treat asthma attack.  Montelukast Mylan tablets 5mg can be used in addition to other asthma medications, including inhaled corticosteroids and bronchodilators.  Montelukast Mylan chewable tablets 5mg are also used as prophylaxis to prevent exercise-induced asthma.  Montelukast Mylan chewable 5mg are also used to treat seasonal allergy to pollen (hay fever), and perennial allergy, such as to animal fur, mould and house dust mites, which cause allergic rhinitis with symptoms including nasal congestion, runny itchy nose, sneezing, tearing, itchy, red, and puffy eyes and problems sleeping.   Montelukast Mylan chewable tablets 5mg have a cherry flavouring to make them more palatable to children.

How does Montelukast Mylan work?

Montelukast Mylan chewable tablets 5mg 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 that are involved in the pathophysiology of asthma and allergic rhinitis.  Montelukast in Montelukast Mylan tablets 5mg 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.  Montelukast Mylan chewable tablets 5mg help prevent bronchoconstriction, mucous secretion, vascular permeability, and eosinophil recruitment to relieve symptoms of asthma and allergic rhinitis.
