Tolerability profiles of leukotriene receptor antagonists and long-acting beta2-adrenoceptor agonists in combination with inhaled corticosteroids for treatment of asthma: a review.
J Asthma. 2007 Jul-Aug; 44(6):411-22.JA

Abstract

Inhaled corticosteroids, long-acting beta2-adrenoceptor agonists, and leukotriene receptor antagonists are widely used for treatment of asthma. Inhaled corticosteroids are recommended as first-line therapy, whereas long-acting beta2-adrenoceptor agonists and leukotriene receptor antagonists are indicated as add-on therapy in patients not adequately controlled with corticosteroids alone. A number of studies have investigated the efficacy of combinations of these drugs in asthma, but several issues concerning the safety of these treatments are highly debated. This review provides a critical appraisal of the tolerability profiles of long-acting beta2-agonists and leukotriene receptor antagonists used in combination with inhaled corticosteroids for the treatment of asthma.
