Thank you for posting a question.

Firstly, dust allergy is an allergic condition where body detects dust as foreign particle and develops antibody against it. It is mainly a genetic disease, associated with family history. So, it is basically problem of immune mechanism.

So, you must understand one thing, that, no drug can render you allergy free for the rest of your life.

In case of Montek LC, it is a good drug. But its effectiveness varies person to person. So, it is very difficult to say the time period you will be free from allergy.

But, overall, it can be said that you will feel better after completion of the course of this drug.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Thank you for writing back.

You can continue the medicine as your treating doctor has been prescribed. Generally, it is given for 1 to 2 months depending upon severity.

If you do not have any family history, then you have this disease sporadically.
