Hello,

I am happy to help with you question.

Are you saying that you took 2 doses within a 14 hour time span? IF that is the case, do not worry. This medication has a very low toxicity. We give it to children. Or are you saying something else? Please clarify. When you clarify I will be happy to answer your question further.

i am facing severe back pain . What would be causes except injury.

Hello again,

I am sorry you are in pain. There is no relationship between back pain and Montelukast. It is certainly not due to drug toxicity.

So the reasons could be

1. Muscle spasms/strain.
2. Nerve root compression.
3. Herniated/prolapsed inter-vertebral discs.

A visit to your orthopedician will help to identify the cause and manage it properly.

All the best,
Dr. Schwartz
