Why use Montair LC Kid for allergy?
Montair LC Kid is a combination medicine of Montelukast Sodium and Levocetirizine HCL. Montelukast alone is effective and helps relieve allergic symptoms.

How does Montair LC Kid work?
Montair LC Kid is a combination of two active ingredients. The Levocetirizine HCL is an anti-allergic agent. It blocks histamines responsible for watery eyes, sneezing and runny nose. Montelukast is a leukotriene antagonist. It works by blocking leukotriene, another chemical messenger in the body. These two actions reduce swelling in the airways and nose and improve the symptoms too.
