Accolate (Zafirlukast)

Brand Name: Accolate
Generic Name: Zafirlukast

You can buy Accolate online and without prescription.

Uses and Indications

Accolate is a leukotriene (loo-koe-TRY-een) inhibitor. Leukotrienes are chemicals your body releases when you breathe in an allergen (such as pollen). These chemicals cause swelling in your lungs and tightening of the muscles around your airways, which can result in asthma symptoms.

Accolate is used to treat and prevent asthma attacks in adults and children as young as 5 years old.

Safe usage and general guidance

Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Accolate is usually taken once daily in the evening for prevention of asthma or allergy symptoms. Follow your doctor's instructions.

Take Accolate on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Acculate will not work fast enough to treat an asthma attack that has already begun. Use only a fast-acting inhalation medicine to treat an asthma attack. Talk with your doctor if any of your asthma medications do not seem to work as well in treating or preventing attacks. It may take up to several weeks before your symptoms improve. Keep using the medication as directed and tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after several weeks of treatment.

Asthma is usually treated with a combination of drugs. Use all medications as directed by your doctor. Read the medication guide or patient instructions provided with each medication. Do not change your doses or medication schedule without your doctor's advice, even if you have no asthma symptoms.
