The pt had asthma (SOB, wakes up at night out of breath, has allergies). It asked for the precursor of leukotrienes, which is arachidonic acid. The prob gave him Montelukast or inhaled glucocorticoids.

ls3076  wtf is up with the phrasing of this question +19  
djtallahassee  Must have been Montelukast right? Since GCs do more of a downregulation thing than a true receptor blocking. Maybe I am not reading that last sentence correct though. +  
alexxxx30  @Is3076 haha agreed!! +  

Bro's the only one of thease answers that can produce metabolites is Arachidonic acid
