BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST is a respiratory medication, primarily used in the treatment of asthma and other similar conditions. Asthma is a breathing problem in which airways narrow, swell and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing.
BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST is a combination of two medicines: Bambuterol (bronchodilator) and Montelukast (leukotriene receptor antagonist). Bambuterol belongs to the bronchodilators class; it works by relaxing muscles and widening the lungs' airways. Bambuterol also has mucoregulating/mucolytic (dissolves thick mucus and helps relieve breathing difficulties) and anti-inflammatory properties. Montelukast belongs to the class of leukotriene receptor antagonists. Leukotrienes are inflammatory chemicals that are released by the body when an allergen comes into contact. These chemicals cause swelling in the lungs and tightening of the airway muscles, which are the primary causes of asthma attacks. Montelukast works by blocking these leukotrienes, thereby reducing inflammation and swelling in the nose. It also inhibits bronchoconstriction (narrowing of airways in the lungs that lead to breathing difficulties) and is used in treating asthma and allergic rhinitis.
BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST is available in the form of oral tablets. Your doctor will advise the dose and duration of the course based on the severity of your disease. The common side effects of BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST include nausea, cough, vomiting, diarrhoea, flu-like symptoms, sleep disturbance, faster heartbeats, and muscle cramps. Most of these side effects of BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, please reach out to your doctor.
Please inform your doctor in advance if you have heart, overactive thyroid gland, liver or kidney disease, family history of glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye) before taking BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST. BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST is not intended for use during an acute asthma attack. Your doctor may suggest other medications for your sudden asthma attack.
Therapy with leukotriene receptor antagonists like Montelukast should be cautiously administered in patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. There are chances of developing psychiatric-type effects, including agitation, aggressive behaviour, anxiety, depression, abnormal dreams, and hallucinations. BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST may not be used during pregnancy since it may affect the unborn baby. Also, there are chances of Montelukast excreting into breast milk during breastfeeding. It is advisable to check with your doctor if you are pregnant, currently breastfeeding, or taking any other prescribed or non-prescribed medicines before starting BAMBUTEROL+MONTELUKAST. Inform your doctor if you have diabetes, have a history of heart disease. Inform your doctor about your ongoing medications. Inform your doctor immediately if your breathing problems get worse.
