Montelukast is a kind of new medication as prevention for allergy asthma disorders and it's recommended for children above 4 yrs safely. This tablet must be swallowed as a whole and should not be crushed. there are no known side effects for the dose you are giving to your kid. I feel you should avoid giving ascoril to your child as oral medications for asthma is not a very effective way of treating it because of its lack of efficacy.
