How Fegra M Tablet Works
Fegra M Tablet reduces the unpleasant symptoms of allergic rhinitis, where fexofenadine acts by antagonizing the effects of histamine (a substance that cause allergic reaction) on the surface of cells and montelukast acts by blocking the leukotriene receptor, thus leading to a relaxation in smooth muscle, which in turn decreases swelling and inflammation in the airways.
