Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Montek LC is a combination of Montelukast and Levocetrizine.The use of montelukast in pregnancy is to be done with caution when the potential benefit is more in comparison of the side effect or problem.There are many other options like ebastine;cetrizine or plain levocetrizine can be used but only when necessary.
Thanks

Hello, I am a 24 yr old female and roughly 173 pounds. My Psychiatrist recently switched me from Ritalin to Focalin. I am on the generic form of Focalin. Four days ago, I experienced a near fainting spell. My hearing became muffled and I started having hot/cold sweats. I had to immediately sit down and sip on Gatorade. I ended up vomiting 3 times after my near fainting spell. Two nights ago, I had a similar re-occurance. I ended up profusely vomiting more than the previous spell. I have currently been on the Focalin for a week and am experiencing these random spells and at times a sour stomach. What should I do?
