Hello Doctor,
I’m 30 yrs old Male, suffering from Asthma (allergic to dust & cold) since 18 yrs. I have consulted many doctors to get rid of this Asthma but finally I am settled with MONTEK-LC tablet from past 2 yrs. I am comfortable with this tablet and use to take 2 or sometime 3 days once in a night time that will comfort me for 48 hr to 72 hrs. Here my problem is facing few rashes on my face and forehead from past 2 months. I heard this might be because of allergy. I Google it based on the drug Montek-LC and found this may causes rash as a side effect because I only take regularly this tablet. Can you pls let me know is this because of Montek-LC tablet or may be some other and also is there a way to get rid of this Asthma permanently??? Kindly do the help…!!

Your symptoms can be due to bronchitis or asthma. The fact that you get relief when you take Montek LC favors this. We would need to perform a spirometry ( pulmonary function test) to ascertain the cause of your symptoms. In my opinion, inhaled corticosteroids like...

Sir, my age- 32 years and sex- male. I am having an epididymal cyst on the left testicle. The report of my scrotal ultrasound has been attached. When I was sleeping last night a sudden pain was felt on my right(not at the left) testicle for which I was wake up. The pain was like as if striking my testicle by finger tip repeatedly after an interval of 10/12 seconds. After 3/4 minutes the pain disappeared . sir, is it testicular torsion or some other serious condition ?

I consulted one urologist in my locality. After hearing these symptoms . He said that this is not testicular torsion and nothing to worry about. But he didn't examine me physically only he saw my ultrasound report which was done on 28/09/2013 ( much before this incident which happened to me last night). He told me that no treatment is required for now. But he prescribed me certain medicines which I have written below.

1. Decet BD
2. Levotec 500

Sie, I am confused these medicines are for which disease ?
Am I having any chance of any testicular torsion or any other serious condition in future and these medicines are to prevent it ???
Is it necessary to take these medicines (I am having asthma so I am presently taking Montek LC tablets every day which I forgotten to say the local urologist).
Sir , the most important query is that am I more prone to testicular torsion in future due to this incident ?
I intend to learn martial art in future and may do physical exercise. Am I allowed to do so (I afraid if I am more prone to testicular torsion after this incident then I may not be allowed for learning martial art or doing physical exercise)

Please help me sir...

Good morning.

could you please tell me the difference between Montek LC tablets abd Cetirizine. I do suffer from skin alllergies from time to time. My blood tests showed that I am highly sensitive to Citrus fruits.I have completely eliminated them from my diet. I also develop these allergies whenever I have been prescribed heavy duty antibiotics ,in this case it was about a month back due to a dental surgery. I have always responded well to Cetirizine,but this time the has asked me to try Montek LC .Since i do not react well to all medicines,I request your Guidance.

Thank you
Dear Friend.

Cetrizine is an anti histaminic drug used to treat allergies.

Montelukast is a leukotriene receptor antagonist used for the maintenance treatment of asthma and to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Montek LC contains both Levocetzine (relative of cetrizine) and montelukast.
