What is a Montelukast Tablet?
Montelukast happens to be a medication used in the treatment of asthma, although it has lesser popularity compared to the inhaled corticosteroids; as it is not useful for acute asthma attacks.
Some other cases where this drug can be used include long-term hives and allergic rhinitis; for which it is a second-line treatment.
Montelukast is usually taken in the dosage form of a tablet, chewable tablet, or as granules.
How do Montelukast Tablets work?
In simplest of terms, Montelukast works by blocking the action of leukotriene D4 in the lungs resulting in decreased inflammation and relaxation of smooth muscle.
Montelukast acts as a leukotriene receptor antagonist (cysteinyl leukotriene receptors) and eventually shuts the function of these inflammatory mediators. Leukotrienes are produced by the immune system and serve to promote bronchoconstriction, inflammation, microvascular permeability, and mucus secretion in cases of asthma and COPD.
While technically speaking, it is a leukotriene receptor antagonist that binds with strong association and selectivity to the CysLT type 1 receptor, which again helps in inhibiting any physiological actions of CysLTs like LTC4, LTD4, and LTE4 at the receptor that may facilitate asthma or allergic rhinitis.
