Varemont-L Tablets are a combination of montelukast sodium & levocetirizinedihydrochloride.
Montelukast sodium is an orally active compound that binds with high affinity and selectivity to the CysLT type-1 (CysLT1) receptor. Montelukast inhibits physiologic actions of LTD4 at the CysLT1 receptor without any agonist activity. It therefore acts as a leukotriene receptor antagonist.
Levocetirizine, the R-enantiomer of cetirizine, is a potent and selective antagonist of peripheral H1-receptors.
It has been demonstrated by recent studies that the treatment of allergic rhinitis (AR) with concomitant administration of an antileukotriene (montelukast) and an antihistamine (levocetirizine), shows significantly better symptom relief compared with the modest improvement of rhinitis symptomatology with each of the treatments alone.
Varemont-L tablets are indicated for the treatment, control, prevention, & improvement of the following diseases, conditions and symptoms:
- Inflammation of the nose due to an allergy
- Allergic rhinitis (seasonal and perennial)
- Chronic idiopathic urticarial
- Exercise-induced bronchospasm prevention
- Controller medication for asthma
The recommended dose of Varemont-L tablet is one tabletonce daily in adults(>15 years) only.
