This drug is terrible. I'm back to headaches tightness in my chest and wheezeing. I see my doctor the end of this month and I'm going to beg to be put back on singluar. My insurance will pay for it but at a tier 3 payment. I'll gladly pay the extra.

I have taken Singular for years and at times could almost forget I had asthma.A month ago my ins.company sent Montelukast instead. A week after I started using it I began to cough, sneeze,wheeze and have drainage and was back to where I started when I first started taking Singular. I am very unhappy with this drug. I might as well not take anything.
