Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Letairis include the following:
- Letairis comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth once a day.
- This medication can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it upsets your stomach.
- You can take Letairis any time during the day, but try to take it at the same time each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
- Swallow Letairis whole. Do not crush, cut, chew, or split the tablets.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
The dose of Letairis your healthcare provider recommends may vary, depending on a couple of factors, including:
- How you tolerate the medicine
- Other medications you are taking.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

Just like any medicine, Letairis can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medicine will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Some of the most common Letairis side effects include but are not limited to:
- Swelling of the body, especially the hands, legs, ankles, and feet
- Nasal congestion
- Inflamed sinuses (nasal passages).
