    I am 65 and overall healthy and fit for my age. My doctor prescribed Singulair for mild hyperinflation, carbon dioxide trapped in the lung due to an allergic/asthma situation. I have taken 6 doses, and my breathing has improved; however, within an hour of taking it I have heart palpitations and nervousness, and my heart rate goes to 115. One day I did not take it, and my heart rate was down to ... Show Full Comment

    Did not read side effects when I got this medicine, been on it a week. Although I can breath better and my eyes are not red all the time, I have noticed severe changes in my mental capacity. I have been dealing craps at the casino for over 8 years, and I'm getting confused on how to pay simple bets that I have paid a thousand times, and getting depressed. People keep asking me if I am alright. ... Show Full Comment

    I am 52 years old and have been dealing with an allergic asthma/cough for 5-6 years now. Nothing has stopped it until Singulair. However, i have been taking it for 2 weeks and I feel like HELL! Right away I got severe numbness and pain in my arms, legs, hands, feet, and spine. I also developed an on again, off again fever of 100. I had a severe headache that finally went away after a week.

    I have read most of the reviews and I just have to say this. The generic is working fine for me. But then I do not just have severe Asthma I also have emphysema. I take advair 50/500 spiriva and the singulair. I use a rescue inhaler and I also use albuteral in my nebulizer every 4 hours. If the generic is not working for you talk to your DR. Not everyone is alike. Our genetic systems are different ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I have had a good experience with singular. I agree with all other reviews in that the generic does not work, so I pay extra for brand and have requested that my prescriptions only specify brand. I take it for long periods of time. The longest is for 6 months. I would like to know if anyone has liver issues. I recently was told my liver enzymes were high. I would like to know if long term use ca ... Show Full Comment
