How ML-Cetiriz Products work

Levocetirizine + Montelukast is a combination of two medicines: Levocetirizine + Montelukast1 and Levocetirizine + Montelukast2, which relieves sneezing and runny nose due to allergies. Levocetirizine + Montelukast1 is an antiallergic which blocks a chemical messenger (histamine) responsible for runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Levocetirizine + Montelukast2 is a leukotriene antagonist. It works by blocking another chemical messenger (leukotriene). This reduces inflammation (swelling) in the airways and nose, and improves symptoms.
