How Dalvo-M Syrup works

Dalvo-M Syrup 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. It works by blocking another chemical messenger (leukotriene). This reduces inflammation (swelling) in the airways and nose, and improves symptoms.

Q. What is Dalvo-M?
Dalvo-M is a combination of two medicines: Montelukast and Levocetirizine. Levocetirizine is an antiallergic which helps to relieve allergy symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes and cough. It works by lowering chemicals in the body that cause allergy symptoms. Montelukast works by blocking another chemical messenger (leukotriene) and reduces inflammation (swelling) in the airways and nose. This further helps to relieve the symptoms.
Q. Can the use of Dalvo-M cause drowsiness or sleepiness?
Yes, the most common side effect of Dalvo-M is sleepiness. Do not drive, operate heavy machinery or engage in other activities that need your full attention unless your doctor says that you may do so. Do not drink alcohol or take other central nervous system depressants, such as cough and cold medicines. Also avoid taking certain pain relief medicines and medicines that help you sleep as they can lead to severe drowsiness or can worsen it, causing falls or accidents.
Q. Can Dalvo-M be stopped when allergy symptoms are relieved?
No, Dalvo-M should be continued as advised by the doctor. If you experience any side effects of this medicine or the symptoms of allergy are worsened, consult the doctor for re-evaluation.
Q. Can the use of Dalvo-M cause dry mouth?
Yes, the use of Dalvo-M can cause dry mouth. If you experience dry mouth, drink plenty of water. Take regular sips during the day and keep some water by your bed at night. You may use lip balm if your lips are also dry.
Q. Can I drink alcohol while taking Dalvo-M?
No, do not take alcohol while taking Dalvo-M. Drinking alcohol will increase the severity of drowsiness/sleepiness caused by Dalvo-M.
Q. Will Dalvo-M be more effective if taken in higher doses?
No, taking a higher dose of this medicine than recommended will not make it more effective. Consuming higher than the recommended dose of Dalvo-M can cause increased side effects. If the symptoms are getting severe, please consult the doctor for re-evaluation.
