I stopped taking for over a month then tried again. on the second dose two da ... Show Full Comment

    A lot of negative reviews are from parents giving this medicine to their children. Montelukast is only for patients 15 and older. I haven't had any side effects. Since starting Singulair (generic) I seldom have to use my inhaler. I used to get bronchitis following every cold I got; no bronchitis since starting Singulair. Although I still get upper respiratory allergy symptoms, Singulair is gre ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking this drug since I was 17..I'm 26 now. I used to have SEVERE seasonal allergies and the only thing that would work would be benadryl but I couldn't take that during the day due to drowsiness. My doctor suggested this and it was like a life saver for my allergies. The only side effects I have noticed is every now and then I'll have some pretty strange/vivid dreams. I ... Show Full Comment
