How it works
Bambuterol works by relaxing and opening the blocked air passages leading to the lungs. This improves airflow into the lungs and makes breathing easier. Montelukast acts by blocking the response of certain specific chemicals that cause allergic responses in the body. Their combination is thus effective in treating chronic asthma.
