Suffer from chronic asthma. Have chest congestion. Given LCZ mont. Do I have bronchitis?

Hi,
I am a 36 year male with chronic asthma. At times or in changing weather i feel chest congestion. I consulted a physician who prescribed me LCZ-Mont with Broncocet, which i found is given to bronchitis patients. Though, it helped me a lot in reliving my above mentioned symptoms, I am curious about the medicine. Should I continue with the medicine at time of symptoms or not?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

LCZ -Mont contains Levo-cetrizine and Montelukast...
The first one is anti-histamine – used in allergy
The second one is leukotriene antagonist – it is useful in the prophylaxis of bronchial asthma..

Broncocet contains Terbutaline / Etophylline / Ambroxol      - and is used in vronchitis...     

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Allergist and Immunologist Dr. Suman Kumar's  Response
these medicines are given ALSO IN ALLERGIES LEVOCETRIZINE AND CETRIZINE ARE NOW NOT USED
MONTELUCAST PLAIN SINGULAR 1 TAB OD CAN BE TAKEN REGULARLY BD CAN BE DEPENDING ON SYMPTOMPS
THE MONTELUCAST HAS BEEN STUDIED TO TREAT ALLERGIES ALSO SO WE CAN SAFELY AKE IT WITHOUT ANY SIDE EFFECTS
GET YOUR BLOOD SERUN TESTED FOR FOOD SPECIFIC ANTIBODIES FOR FOOD AND ALSO FOR POLLENS AND DUSTS AND AFTER THIS YOU CAN GO FOR IMMUNOTHERAPY FOR CURING ALLERGIES
