Hi Shajitha,
Thanks for writing your query.

Mntair LC contains montelukast and levocetrizine. These medicines help in control of symptoms of bronchitis. The montelukast have to be taken for long duration.

Almost every medicine has some or the other side effects. Your doctor who have examined the child is the best judge and must have prescribed the medicine if the benefit is more than the side effects.

You should take care that the child is properly covered during the climate change.
You should give him fresh fruits and vegetables to increase his immunity.
His hands should be kept clean to prevent entry of infection causing organisms through dirty hands.

I hope this is helpful to you.
