Allergist and Immunologist Dr. Sujoy Khan's  Response
The optimal treatment for severe house dust mite allergy is long acting antihistamines like Allegra 180mg once daily plus flixonase or nasonex nasal spray 1-2 sprays/nostril twice daily. Montelukast 10mg can be added at night if there is asthma or lung hyperresponsiveness.

Montair LC is a combination of montelukast and Levocetirizine that can be given in severe dust allergy. Montelukast has side effects though nothing very serious and the only serious one reported in develpment of Churg Strauss syndrome, a vasculitis, though yet to be proven. Levocetirizine is a very safe second generation antihistamine.

The long term treatment is immunotherapy (subcutaneous or sublingual drops) against house dust mite given over 3-5 years. This should only be given by a specialist trained in this therapy.

I hope this helps.
Best Wishes.

General & Family Physician Dr. Muhammad Erfan's  Response
Could you please clarify whether or not your husband has asthma?Is he on any other medications apart from Montair. Montair LC is generally used as a prophylactic medicine to prevent asthma attacks, it's also helpful in reducing lung congestion. it can cause nausea, dry mouth and dizziness but in a very small proportion of people.
hope that helps
