More Information on Zyflo Indications

How Does Zyflo Work?

Zyflo is part of a group of medications called leukotriene synthesis inhibitors. Leukotrienes are chemicals produced by the body in response to allergens or other problems. In the lungs, leukotrienes cause swelling and inflammation in the airways and constriction of the muscles of the respiratory tract.
 
Zyflo works by stopping the body from making leukotrienes, preventing these leukotriene chemicals from causing asthma symptoms.
  

Zyflo Use in Children

Off-Label Zyflo Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Zyflo for something other than preventing asthma attacks. At this time, using Zyflo to treat allergies is considered to be among these potential off-label Zyflo uses.
