Lukast LC contains two ingredients montelukast and levocetirizine which are rapid anti-allergic compounds that also control bronchoconstriction in the respiratory tract. Thus, if you are suffering from allergic rhinitis & asthma Lukast LC can provide fast relief. Lukast is available as both tablets and suspension for adults and for paediatric patients. Ask your doctor for the correct dosage for you.
LUKAST LC Tablets is a combination of Montelukast Sodium & Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride. Montelukast sodium is an orally active compound that binds with high affinity and selectivity to the CysLT1 receptor. Montelukast inhibits physiologic actions of LTD 4 at the CysLT1 receptor without any agonist activity. It therefore acts as a leukotriene receptor antagonist Levocetirizine, the R-enantiomer of cetirizine, is a potent and selective antagonist of peripheral H1-receptors. It has been demonstrated by recent studies that the treatment of AR with concomitant administration of an antileukotriene (montelukast) and an antihistamine (levocetirizine), shows significantly better symptom relief compared with the modest improvement of rhinitis symptomatology with each of the treatments alone.
Children (2-5years): 1 LUCAST LC Tablet once daily
