HOW IT WORKS
When triggered by allergens, your immune cells release leukotrienes that can lead to worsened allergy symptoms. Montelukast (an antileukotriene) blocks leukotriene receptors, providing relief for allergy (and other) symptoms.

Antihistamines block histamines, but montelukast blocks leukotrienes, another agent of allergy mayhem. If you haven't had luck with antihistamines, it may be time to try a leukotriene blocker.
