INTRODUCTION

EBAZIDE M is a combination of Ebastine and Montelukast which belongs to the group of medicines called H1 receptor blockers and Leukotriene receptor antagonists respectively. It is used to treat seasonal allergic rhinitis.

Allergic rhinitis (also known as hay fever) is an allergic condition caused due to allergens such as pollens, dusts, molds, or flakes of skin from certain animals. It can occur seasonally or year-round and often characterized by inflammation of the inner lining of the nose accompanied by nasal decongestion, repeated sneezing, or a red, watery, and itchy eyes.

Ebastine is a selective H1 receptor blocker and montelukast is a leukotriene receptor antagonist. They both act together and prevent the release of certain chemicals (histamines and leukotriene) in the body that causes inflammation, swelling and narrowing of the nasal tract.

Take EBAZIDE M for the stipulated duration instructed by your doctor. Do not stop taking EBAZIDE M once your symptoms subside during the mid-way of the therapy as it may make your symptoms to reappear. EBAZIDE M is suitable for use in both adults and in adolescents aged above 15 years.

EBAZIDE M effectively controls and prevents the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. It contains two medicines namely, ebastine and montelukast.

Montelukast reduces inflammation and swelling of the airways by blocking the release of certain chemicals (leukotriene) in the airways that causes inflammation. Together, they reduce the unpleasant symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
