    How does the drug work?

    Montelukast is a cysteinyl leukotriene receptor blocker. Leukotrienes are the inflammatory mediators that are produced by leucocytes. These inflammatory mediators cause inflammation, swelling of airways, bronchoconstriction , and increases mucous production due to which patient develops asthma and has difficulty in breathing. Montelukast binds to cysteinyl leukotriene receptors that are present on the lungs and smooth muscles of bronchi and inhibits the effects of leukotrienes. Levocetrizine is a H1 receptor blocker which is most commonly used to alleviate symptoms of allergy. H1 receptors are G-protein coupled receptors that are located on the T cells, B- cells, monocytes and lymphocytes. Stimulation of H1 receptors caUSES inflammatory effects, vasodilation, headache, bronchoconstriction, hypotension and tachycardia. Levocetrizine is an active enantiomer of cetirizine, it blocks the H1 receptors which are commonly activated by histamine- inflammatory mediator and potent vasodilator.
