Japanese Montelukast tablets are effective for the treatment of the bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis. It has a rapid onset, that’s why it’s supposed to be taken before bedtime, when the symptoms of asthma and rhinitis tend to worsen. Studies showed that montelukast is generally safe, has few side effects, does not inquire inhalator and effectively reduce the frequency of attacks in patients with asthma (Kam Lun Ellis Hon, Ting Fan Leung, Alexander K.C. Leung. “Clinical effectiveness and safety of montelukast in asthma. What are the conclusions from clinical trials and meta-analyses?”. Drug Design, Development and Therapy. 2014; 8: 839–850). However, this medicine is not designed to alleviate the asthma attack immediately, so the patient should use another medication if still needed.
