INTRODUCTION

ODIMONT LC KID TABLET is a combination of Levocetirizine and Montelukast which belongs to the group of medicines called H1 receptor antagonists and Leukotriene receptor antagonists respectively. ODIMONT LC KID TABLET is indicated for the treatment and prevention of allergic rhinitis, chronic idiopathic urticaria (allergic skin reaction with red raised itchy bumps on the skin) and bronchial asthma in children aged between 6-14 years.     

Allergic rhinitis (also known as hay fever) is a heterogeneous disorder characterized by inflammation of the inner lining of the nose accompanied by nasal decongestion, repeated sneezing, wheezing, or red, watery and itchy eyes.    

It is usually caused by allergens such as pollens, dust, mould, or flakes of skin from certain animals and can occur seasonally or year-round. Bronchial asthma is a long-term medical condition in which the path of the airways becomes inflamed, narrow, and swollen. Symptoms include coughing, wheezing, and chest tightness.  

ODIMONT LC KID TABLET is contraindicated for use in children having severe kidney impairment. Consult your child’s doctor before use.     

ODIMONT LC KID TABLET may cause certain unpleasant neuropsychiatric events (such as behaviour and mood-related changes: agitation including aggressive behaviour or hostility, depression) in some children. Consult your child’s doctor immediately if your child experiences any such events.  

The most common side effects of taking ODIMONT LC KID TABLET are upper respiratory tract infection, fever, cough, inflammation of the pharynx, dryness of mouth, headache and sleepiness. Consult your child’s doctor if any of the side effects worsen.

USES OF ODIMONT LC KID TABLET

  • Treats and prevents allergic rhinitis, chronic idiopathic urticaria and bronchial asthma in children aged between 6-14 years

HOW ODIMONT LC KID TABLET WORKS

ODIMONT LC KID TABLET provides relief from the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, asthma and urticaria where levocetirizine acts by blocking the actions of histamines (a substance that cause allergic reaction), at the H1 receptors present on the surface of cells and montelukast acts by blocking the action of leukotrienes D4 (an inflammatory molecule causing narrowing and swelling of the airways) in the lungs, thus causing relaxation of smooth muscle, reduction in swelling and/or inflammation of the airways and a marked decrease in the onset of allergic reactions.
