Abstract: Montelukast, a leukotriene receptor antagonist, provides mild relief but is less effective than antihistamines for treating patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria. (SOR: A, based on consistent RCTs.) Montelukast may provide additional symptom relief as add-on therapy with an antihistamine. (SOR: B, based on conflicting RCTs.)
