What are the long term effects of Montek LC?
User rating for this question
Doctor as my son (9 and half year old) gets frequent allergic cold, doctor advised him to give Montek LC Kid 4mg, two tablets until winter gets over. We started medication in last week of October. It works fine for him as he did not get any allergic cold after that except once mild throat infection which went off with sinarest 1/2 tablet for 3 days, 3 times daily. I just want to confirm that Montek doesn't have any long term side effects. Thanks
