Were you looking for information on Montelukast? Montlukast is a common misspelling of montelukast.
Montelukast is commonly used in the treatment of asthma (including exercise-induced attacks), as well as to relieve an itchy, stuffy, or runny nose that is the result of allergies. The drug works by blocking leukotriene receptors; this, in turn, helps prevent a reaction to allergens. Montelukast is available as tablets, granules, and chewable tablets. Commonly reported side effects include stomach pain, headaches, and the flu.
