Montair Plus (Bambuterol 10 Mg & Montelukast 10 Mg)
Bambuterol is used in adults for the management of asthma, bronchospasm and/or reversible airways obstruction. Montelukast is used to prevent and treat asthma, seasonal and year round allergies (hay fever), and prevent exercise-induced asthma.
How it works
Bambuterol belongs to a group of medicines called bronchodilators. It works by dilating (widening) your airways, by opening up the air passages in your lungs so that air can flow into your lungs more freely. For people with asthma this helps to relieve symptoms such as coughing, wheezing and breathlessness, particularly during night-time. Montelukast belong to a class of medicines called leukotriene receptor antagonist (anti-asthmatic drugs). It blocks the action of certain natural substances (leukotrienes) that are involved in causing asthma and allergies. It makes breathing easier by reducing swelling in the airways.
