Yes: Cetirizine can be an appetite stimulant, but to curb hunger pains if felt, drink a glass of water, otherwise no direct effect as salt / water retention that would lead to weight increase as with other medicines

Can long-term use of Singulair and Levocetirizine (for chronic allergies) cause side effects: liver damage, low sex drive/libido? Can't use sprays.

Can long-term use of Singulair and Levocetirizine (for chronic allergies) cause side effects: liver damage, low sex drive/libido? Can't use sprays.

Not really: But you need to keep the follow up with your doctor, both drugs aren't known for the side effects you noted, Singular may cause liver problems, but not related to long term use rather due to a reaction by some patients even after few doses, rare. If you have chronic allergies, you need an allergist evaluation with regular follow up as you may need different approach, check aaaai. Org for an allergist

Describe a period beyond which levocetirizine and montelukast should not be used in young kids suffering bronchial asthma?

No such period: There is no period when these drugs should not be used. The question is whether they are still working and whether something different may be required. Your doctor should be able to provide the answer for these questions.

5 months & 5.8kgs had suffered with ARDS at birth. Now having cold & the doc suggested montelukast sodium& levocetirizine dihydrochloride 2.5 ml-1*60day?

5 months & 5.8kgs had suffered with ARDS at birth. Now having cold & the doc suggested montelukast sodium& levocetirizine dihydrochloride 2.5 ml-1*60day?

?: Monelukast is mainly used for asthma especially when triggered by a viral infection. Levocetirizine is mainly used for allergic rhinitis but I don't see either being an issue although levocetirizine may dry up your nose a little. Dose of levocetirizine at 2.5 mg is ok unless drowsiness is noted.

Can I take Guaifenesin, Levocetirizine and Montelukast every day forever? No doctor has been able to find my cause for thick mucus and nose congestion

Likely: These are some of the safest drugs but not totally devoid of side effects. Have you ever consent an allergist about your condition?

Can I take Montelukast with Desloratadine together? Suffer from persistent rhinitis symptoms. Levocetirizine and Montelukast works OK, but sore throat

Yes: But I would doubt that the results would be that much different. Have you tried a nasal steroid? If nasal steroid also failed, consult an allergist.

Is Singulair (montelukast) as dangerous as Google makes it out to be? My Dr wanted me to try it for my allergies but I'm scared to after reading side effects listed!

Is Singulair (montelukast) as dangerous as Google makes it out to be? My Dr wanted me to try it for my allergies but I'm scared to after reading side effects listed!

No and yes: Singulair (montelukast) is widely considered to be exceedingly safe. 2% of the time or less, side effects such as dizziness, abdominal discomfort, liver stress, skin rash or weakness occur and it can worsen lung/respiratory/nasal disease about 1% of the time. NOT a rescue medication for asthma. Very rarely; it is reported to have unusual neuropsych effects (suicidal ideation, hallucination, agitation, etc)
