I use Singulair in the evening for asthma. I use it with a medication that has an inhaled steroid/long-acting bronchodilator in it. I need to use both of the medications together so that I don't wake up at night. The only side-effect I get is that my dreams are strange and vivid.

Last year I became extremely depressed but blamed it on life. Stopped taking it in the fall. I started back on it and the first three days, I would cry for absolutely no reason- no explanation. I realized the third nigh ... Show Full Comment

The medicine worked great for allergy and asthma symptoms, but I give it 3 stars overall because of the cost. I was spending $75 per month until I found a coupon at http://www.singulaircoupon.org, and then I paid only $40. Now I just buy the generic form, montelukast, and it works just as well, and I pay even less!
