Brief Answer:
Change her medication.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. You can stop the current medication.

2. Start a combination of fexofenadine and montelukast (such as Montair-FX or Allergra-M) once a day. A steroid nasal spray (such as Nasonex or Furamist AZ once a day in both nostrils), steam inhalation and one tablet of Disperzyme/ Phlogam (or equivalent) per day. Syp. Reswas one teaspoon twice a day will help. Use Otrinoz-P nasal drops for a few days, 3-4 drops at night (do not use these drops continuously for more than a week).

3. I am assuming that she has no fever or acidity. Inform your doctor.

4. Wait for at least 10 days to see the full effect. Write back in a week.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
