Doxofylline and Montelukast Tablets under the brand name ABIDOX-M. It is a respiratory medication, primarily used to treat and prevent asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD). Asthma is a breathing problem in which airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases that mainly include emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis. This Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Doxofylline (bronchodilator) and Montelukast (leukotriene receptor antagonist).
Doxofylline works by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. It treats the airflow obstruction in the lungs, thereby relieving chest tightness, wheezing, and cough to make breathing easier. Montelukast blocks the leukotrienes (chemicals released in response when a body comes in contact with an allergen), thereby reducing inflammation and swelling in the nose. It also inhibits bronchoconstriction (narrowing of airways in the lungs that lead to breathing difficulties).
