Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Montelukast should be considered to take for around 3-4 weeks period till the acute allergy symptoms are controlled. Later on, it should be used as and when required only, not on regular basis.

Instead of that , you must focus on avoiding the triggering factors as pollen, passive smoke and others.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
