Montelukast 10mg Film-coated Tablets are indicated in the treatment of asthma as add-on therapy in those patients 15 years of age and older with mild to moderate persistent asthma who are inadequately controlled on inhaled corticosteroids and in whom “as-needed” short acting β-agonists provide inadequate clinical control of asthma. In those asthmatic patients 15 years of age and older in whom Montelukast 10mg Film-coated Tablets are indicated in asthma, Montelukast 10mg Film-coated Tablets can also provide symptomatic relief of seasonal allergic rhinitis.

Montelukast 10mg Film-coated Tablets are also indicated in the prophylaxis of asthma in patients 15 years of age and older in which the predominant component is exercise-induced bronchoconstriction.
