    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.

    My insurance did not want to pay for my singular. So I was given this drug. I thought I was going to die last night, my heart was pounding, I was sweating, and felt sick. I should have called 911, stupid me. My hearing went and I sat on the floor for 1 hour. I went back to my MD today and she said I had a allergic reaction.I had a EKG, she said my heart was a little fast and my skin is flushed. I ... Show Full Comment
