Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to montelukast base (CAS RN 158966-92-8). Montelukast sodium is used for long-term prevention of asthma. It reduces the swelling and inflammation that tend to close up the airways and relaxes the walls of the bronchial tubes, expanding the airways and permitting more air to pass through. Montelukast is also used to relieve the stuffy, runny nose and sneezing caused by seasonal allergies. Montelukast sodium is an anti-inflammatory agent that binds to cysteinyl leukotriene type 1 receptors found in smooth muscle cells and macrophages of the upper and lower airways to prevent leukotriene-mediated effects associated with asthma and allergic rhinitis.
