Yes, it seems you are suffering from Allergic Rhinitis.
Don't panic.
Get a total and differential count of blood done, and an X-Ray of Paranasal sinuses.
And be on the vigil for things you are allergic to (Oh no, I didn't mean your darling wife...Ha Ha Ha !).
On a serious note, avoid exposure to cold.
Drink plenty of water.
Take the reports and consult an ENT Specialist.
Taking Montec-LC for long periods of time is not the remedy of your malady.

Montek LC is a combination of montelukast and levocetrizine ; used in the treatment of chronic asthma and allergic rhinitis.This is a relatively safe drug .Get your liver function test done and if it is normal , you can continue taking the drug. Meanwhile ; try to find out what are you allergic to. Some people are allergic to dust, some to smoke, pets etc. Avoid the allergens. Use a mask while dusting the house / use a vacuum cleaner. Keep your house smoke free and dust free.
