How Celkast Tablet works

Celkast Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Levocetirizine and Montelukast which relieve sneezing and runny nose due to allergies. Levocetirizine is an antiallergic which blocks a chemical messenger (histamine) responsible for runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Montelukast is a leukotriene antagonist.
