Hi doctor,

I am a 53 year old male. I have breathing problem for the past eight to 10 years. I develop breathing difficulty during the humid or warm seasons like July to September, for which I take Montair LC once every two days at night-time. Sometimes, if I forget and I experience breathlessness, I use the Asthaline inhaler followed by Montair LC, and the condition improves. Oftentimes, when I have breathlessness, I try to poo, and if I can pass, my breathing gradually becomes alright within half an hour. Breathing gets better without an Asthaline inhaler. Recently, I learned that Montair LC has some side effects. Can I use Asthaline inhaler alone whenever required instead of Montair LC?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Your history suggests that you have seasonal bronchial asthma. For confirmation, get the chest X-ray and spirometry done.
  • An Asthalin inhaler alone will not be helpful. I suggest you take Fluticasone, alone or in combination with Formoterol (Formoflo 250).
  • Also, Montair LC (Montelukast and Levocetirizine) does not have much side effects, only noted is the Churg-Strauss syndrome, which is not side effects of the drug itself, it just uncovers the underlying condition.
