    My son is 4 and has only been on this medication for about 3 weeks. My husband and I couldn't figure out where the mood swings were coming from. He would be restless, wake in the middle of the night with horrible dreams and the worst was that it was affecting him at school. This last week, he has been sent home with a note from his teacher every day stating that he would not follow directions ... Show Full Comment

    After only 2 days of treatment, my 9 y/o son had a significant mood change characterized by: a panic attack, difficulty sleeping, and severe worry about leaving home. I could easily trace it to singular because it was the only recent change in his routine, diet, etc. Needless to stay, I stopped giving it to him, and his mood returned to normal.

    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.

    Prevents breathing problems, no need to use inhaler in about a year now, BUT, I have headaches A LOT. several days per week. Sometimes lasts more than 24 hours. Lately I have been depressed, almost apathetic about everything, little joy in what used to give me pleasure. Think about not being here. I could never harm myself but these thoughts surprise me. Only thing is I am in a "coordinate ... Show Full Comment

    In the spring, my asthma is unbearable and the generic Singulair is the ONLY thing that has helped- Pulmicort, advair, etc. However, I have experienced the WORSE side effects ever! 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
