I had a problem of nose block and my ENT surgeon suggested me to go for a nose operation. As per doctor instruction, operation of my nose was carried out before three months. Now my nose is almost fine, but still I feel that something is there in my throat. I also feel itchy throat and every 10 minutes I need to make a sound to get relief of this itching. After nose operation, my ENT surgeon suggested Levocet M for my throat problem. He advised me to take daily one tablet at night for six months and slowly throat problem will be cured. I am taking Levocet M for the last three months, but still my throat problem remains the same. Please suggest me whether should I continue or stop this tablet. Is there any side effect if I am taking this medicine for a long time? Please suggest me what should I do. Will you recommend me to take any other medicine?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your symptoms seem to suggest that you are suffering from allergy. Levocet M (Levocetirizine and Montelukast) is given for the same purpose.
It is true that the medicine should be taken for a few months regularly. It has minimal side effects, like dryness of mouth, drowsiness and daytime sleepiness. It is advised that you take Levocet M in the night and avoid driving after taking the medicine.
Ideally, I would like to see your nose using nasendoscopy, which is an office procedure. Also, I would like to know more details about the surgery that was done. If you have the papers, then you may please scan the same to me in a query as this will let us diagnose your current condition.
