Alternative therapy with low-dose inhaled corticosteroids in patients with persistent mild asthma
Montelukast-Teva is not recommended as monotherapy in patients with moderate persistent asthma. The use of montelukast as an alternative to low-dose inhaled corticosteroids for children 2-5 years old with persistent mild asthma is recommended only for those patients who have not recently had serious asthma attacks requiring corticosteroids and who have been found to be intolerant of inhaled corticosteroids.

Mild persistent asthma is asthma with symptoms more than 1 time per week, but less often than 1 time per day, night attacks more often than 2 attacks per month, but less often than 1 time per week with normal lung function between attacks.

If satisfactory control of bronchial asthma is achieved after treatment (usually within one month), it is necessary to consider the need for additional or other anti-inflammatory therapy, based on a stepwise system of treatment of bronchial asthma. You should also periodically assess the condition of patients for the control of bronchial asthma. If children have difficulty taking a chewable tablet, the drug should be taken in granular form.

Preventive prevention of exercise-induced asthma
in children 2-5 years of age In children 2-5 years of age, exercise-induced bronchospasm may be the dominant indicator of persistent asthma, requiring treatment with inhaled corticosteroids. Patients should be assessed after 2-4 weeks of Montelukast-Teva treatment. If a satisfactory clinical response to therapy is not achieved, additional or other therapy should be considered.

Montelukast-Teva and other medications for asthma
When treatment with montelukast is used as an adjunct therapy to inhaled corticosteroids, Montelukast-Teva should not be abruptly substituted for inhaled corticosteroids.
