Dear Malu, Welcome to healthcaremagic forum....
Montek lc is a drug that contains montelukast which is a leukotreine receptor blocker and levocetrizine which is an antihistamine.
Both these drugs are useful in treating symptoms of asthma as well as preventing an asthmatic attack when you expect them such as following an exercise, exposure to allergens and so on.
Apart from this, its property to prevent/treat allergic symptoms is used in treating conditions such as nasal allergy, skin allergy or allergy in any other form.
These are the known use of montek lc.
Hope it is clear to you.
Regards
