Answer

Some reports describe the effectiveness of the antileukotriene agents in urticaria, [62, 63] but extensive clinical trials have not been performed, so their usefulness is still questionable. Clinical trials might in the future support the theory that the antileukotriene agents can provide a synergistic response when used in conjunction with antihistamines.
