Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for trusting HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
Abflo and Montek are different classes of drugs although they are used for same disease.
Acebrophylline is an effective bronchodilator medicine used to treat blockage, swelling, and irritation associated with bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It also lyes the mucus and soothen the respiratory tract.
Montek is a brand name for the drug monteleukast.
Montelukast is an oral leukotriene receptor antagonist that is used for the treatment of asthma and rhinitis. Monteleukast prevents allergic symptoms like sneezing and rhinitis.
So combining these two drugs will provide better results in patients.
Thanks
