Hello Doctor

My son suffers from allergic rhinitis and is on SLIT therapy. He developed a cough in late May, which would come on during early mornings and late evenings but never during any other part of the day. His pulmonologist prescribed Deslor to be taken for about 30 days. This was working ok, until he developed a very persistent and incessant cough earlier this week. His pediatrician recommended that we give him Maxtra syrup and Montek 4 mg along with his current medication. Is this safe to be given along with Deslor? He developed breathlessness and chest pain today due to the congestion and had to undergo nebulization

Brief Answer:
yes it is safe

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to HealthcareMagic.

From your description it is probably a exacerbation of allegic bronchitis.

Maxtra has chlorpheniramine and deslor is desloratadine. Both are anti-allergic. Secondly either one of them has to be taken at a time because they can cause sedation. If both are taken together, this effect may exaggerate. Thus there should be a gap of 12 hrs between the two.

The cough should settle soon.
Continue nebulisations as advised by your pulmonologist.

Let me know if I can assist you further. Wishing your son speedy recovery.

Thank you doctor. So is it safe to take Montek and Deslor together?
Answered by Dr. Arun 3 minutes later
Brief Answer:
yes it is safe

Detailed Answer:
Yes it is safe to take montek (only plain monteleukast ) and deslor.
But if you are giving montek lc ( which has levocetrizine and monteleukast )then you should not give both.

Hi Doc my name is Jash, 29, 5'2" in height, and weighs 102 lbs., married. I am having this dry cough since I was young and had a history of bronchitis when i was 1 year old.Just recently, Im having colds, sore throat, productive cough and excessive mucus that bothers me so much especially at night. I took muculytic syrup and capsules, natural cough remedies such as lemon and ginger but i think there's no improvement, Cough still bothers me and it gets even harder and dryer that sometimes i may experience tightness of the chest,and one thing that makes me worried is that we're in the process of having a baby. I am a year married but still wanting to have a child, Does having this (severe) cough would greatly affect of our desire to pregnancy?What are the foods that i need to get rid off that may trigger severe cough and foods that are healthy to the lungs?and if ever I am a week pregnant now then i happened to take this muculytic syrups does it affect the child? i am hoping that my query will be given clarity. Thank you so much doc.

My 8 year old has a croupy cough which comes out mor ein morning and night and when she is running around so we have restricted activity. She has no fever or other symptoms. She has been on a steroid now twice a day since Saturday. She went to school today but the cough sounds even worse now. I also have been givign her abuterol inhaler twice a day as well. My younger daughter had bronchitis last week. Wondering if she needs a nebulizer. Her breathing though seems fine. I would have thought the abuterol would have done the trick and this is day three of the meds. Help!
