Action Mechanism
  • Generic Singulair is actively composed of
    Montelukast Sodium. It is pharmacologically
    denoted as leukotriene receptor antagonist.
  • In asthma, leukotriene (a type of white blood
    cells) is responsible for developing swelling in
    airways and contracting the smooth muscles, which
    further inflames the part and gives rise to
    asthmatic symptoms. In allergies, these cells are
    secreted from nasal mucosa, giving rise to the
    symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
  • Montelukast Sodium inhibits the
    leukotriene-receptor in order to cease the
    production of inflammatory cells leukotriene.
    Thereby, preventing the asthma attack and
    reducing the symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
