All clinical variables by fill out a questionnaire, pulmonary functions (PEF, FEV1) were recorded at the baseline, 6, and 12 weeks. Results: The results showed that adding Montelukast to inhaled Budesonide improves the FEV1, PEF values, and quality of life (decrease the use of beta 2 agonists, the frequency of asthma symptoms, the night symptoms, and the defines activate with a significant difference.
