Description

Singulair® tablets, produced by Merck Sharp & Dohme, are indicated in the treatment of asthma as add-on therapy in those patients with mild to moderate persistent asthma who are inadequately controlled on inhaled corticosteroids. It helps prevent the wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath caused by asthma and decreases the number of asthma attacks. The medicine is used to prevent exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (narrowing of the air passages in the lungs). It also helps treat seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis. The active substance contained in the medication is Montelukast, a leukotriene receptor antagonist, that stops leukotrienes, chemical messengers in the immune system, from causing inflammation in the lungs and nose, preventing asthma symptoms and allergies.

Indications:

- maintenance treatment of asthma;

- prevention of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB);

- seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis.

MOA (mechanism of action):

Montelukast is a leukotriene receptor antagonist (LTRA), used for the maintenance treatment of asthma and relief of seasonal allergies’ symptoms. Montelukast works by blocking the action of leukotrienes, which are chemicals released by the body as part of allergic and inflammatory reactions. Leukotrienes, released from the lungs in people with asthma, cause narrowing and swelling of airways in the lungs and also allergy symptoms. 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 and relieves seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis in patients exposed to substances which trigger their allergy (allergens, e.g. pollen).

Dosage

Asthma:

- Adults (15 years of age and older): 10 mg a day.

- Children (6 to 14 years of age): 5 mg a day.
