How long does it take for singulair to work

Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for singulair to work


640719_tn?1277143630 hmmmm singulair is also an allergy medication (or suppose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be) but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> may not be enough for you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> control hayfever. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> affects a different part of the immune system than the typical antihistamines so some people it works better on, some it does not work as well. From what I got out of the research results if that it does help allergic symptoms but not a huge amount, that is why it is an asthma medication that can also help allergies.
486038_tn?1300066967 I've been reading up on prednisone and MS, and to be honest, I don't want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be on a good streak when I go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> NYU, I'd rather them see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is. Not some drug induced wonderfulness. Just asking cause I really have no clue what cortisone is or does?????????????????? Thanks, talk to ya'll later when I can stop coughing...
Avatar_f_tn I have used cromolyn. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> work well. I tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> with intal and had no positive effect. Intal is just cromolyn through and inhaler. I used the same cromolyn through a nebulizer and it worked so much better. The cromolyn did not feel as stong as singulair and needed repeated dosages through out the day. A good suggestion. A very gentle medication that does work very well for some. I am not sure about long term usage of cromolyn longer than 2 years.
Avatar_m_tn Work with good doctors and they will eventually get you back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> good health. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> may <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span></span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time (3+ years for me), but it is possible. Also, pulmonary function tests can be a little miss leading. The numbers are based on 'norms'. You may not be close to the norms even healthy. I have the opposite problem. My normal is far above the norm so doctors think I am ok when I am 30% below what is healthy for me. Basically, an FEV 1 of 70 for you may be perfectly healthy.
Avatar_m_tn I was taking prednisone this year for about 2 months total and read it causes bone loss/high sugar. how long can I take it safely, can I take 10mg/day for 6 months to a year?
Avatar_n_tn Had total shut down in my breathing abilities. Had ProAir on hand and had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> every three hours for four days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> feel I was able <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> breath at all. I started researching and I found that Symbicort can cause Adrenal failure and Immunosuppression. You wouldn't think possible using medications for 30 days. I began with having food intolerance to most everything. I found I could no longer tolerate preservatives, food colorings, the list goes on. I cough constantly.
Avatar_n_tn This is called eosinophilic pneumonia, and can look like regular pneumonia on a chest x-ray, the difference is eosinophilc pneumonia is not infectious there is no bacteria causing it, it is caused by this infiltrating blood cell (eosinophil) that inflames the lungs, and only steriods will control <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>, or chemo. Many do seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> keep getting on steroids for the asthma, that is so bad, but they just can't get well.
Avatar_n_tn I went on a week long vacation and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> seemed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> mostly go away for the week. Then back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> work, and wham! Right back at <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. This makes me believe it has to be stress and anxiety related/mental. That doesn't mean it has gone away. Either that or my bed at home isn't right for me and I'm not getting the right kind of sleep. Obviously I'm thinking about it a lot if I'm searching online for answers no one has.
Avatar_m_tn I had a surgery done five years ago,on my left side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> open nasal passges,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was perecived <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be successful,but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> didn't work,as time went on for a year or two other symptoms developed,my nasal passages is so bad sometimes I can't breathe it worsens at night time.My doctor has prescribed me with the following medications for the last three years or more allerga d twenty four hour for my sinus,rhinocort for my allergies,and zyrtec.
Avatar_m_tn hi, I want to share my one experience about asthma cure , before 4 years ago I had worse asthma attacks someone told me about saltmine treatment , so I visit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> salt mine for 10 day and I spent daily 10 hours in mine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> really work and I was feeling like my airways are clear and I can breath without any tightness ,and my medicines starts to go down,my doctor was also surprised , I help me for I year,and after that I haven't enough money to visit that mine again,if it is possible for anyone with
Avatar_f_tn Oh I should also mention that it also takes about 1-2 months for some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> term asthma medication <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span></span> full effect so don't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> for 2 weeks and say it isn't working, give it a chance! So I take singulair for asthma and then claritin (as needed) and a daily steroidal nasal spray for my allergies. I would highly recommend seeing a specialist though.
Avatar_m_tn to be fair, maybe the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>singulair</span> is kicking in or I have finally been taking fish oil <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> enough for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have an effect. it's impossible to be sure without continueed testing for the next couple months. What IS certain is that the body IS capable of reversing a serious electrical cardiac malfunction IF the right curative combination is discovered, if only temporarily. If anyone wants to explore this, google Eniva Vibe. it's a worthwhile $40 experiment.
Avatar_f_tn 025 in am and rest at pm, well it worked good for me and i never took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the whole .05. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> takes little of meds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> help me so i stayed at half a pill untill i came back off of it . i think klonopin is a great med. try it at .025 half the pill twice a day and in 3 days go up to the full does like dr said if you feel the half is not doing it for you . good luck.
Avatar_f_tn how long have you been taking your medication? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> takes a good 6 weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> even start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> work and a full 12 weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> reach maximum results! If it has been more than 12 weeks then you should ask your doctor for something else or something along with it. Treating migraines is a marathon, not a sprint and seldom is dealt with on the first medication. it most likely will take a combo of meds. In the meantime here are some over-the-counter things you can try. 1.
Avatar_f_tn I have a good doctor (specialist) but he doesn't explain things to me. I'm trying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be better at understanding the situation and what I must do. I find <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span></span> a lot of meds - just a quirk of mine or stubbornness. I will look into the homeopathic medicines and the mask. Again, thank you.
Avatar_n_tn The above post by amichall is correct take him to the doctor and ask about the meds, some meds do cause a lot of side effects and this little child has enough to cope with,as he cries so much I would think at thie stage it would be better to comfort him not use any time outs or punushment as I doubt he can help it, he is too young for punishment, does he sleep during the day as if he <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> he may not be able <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> sleep many hours at night so check on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> he naps during the day, focus on his po
Avatar_n_tn it doesn't matter what temperature the water is, or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> I am exposed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> for, for the hives <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> occur. The thing I find strange is that it only affects my torso, and never my legs, face, or lower arms. I was only 2 or 3 years ago when i researched "water allergy" on the internet that I came to know what the condition was called. Everything I read about Aquagenic Urticaria that described the symptons, exactly matched what I have experienced for the last 23 years...
Avatar_dr_m_tn Fifth, if you have any known allergies, especially if it's something in your bedroom, try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> either remove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> or or lessen your exposure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. For example, many people are allergic to dust or molds, and if you have carpeting, or an area rug, it can harbor these allergens. Frequently washing your bed sheets in very hot water also helps. Investing in a quality HEPA filter should help even more. If you have any pets, consider keeping them out of your bedroom.
Avatar_f_tn A hard task when you wake up covered in blood from scratching while asleep, a thing that came all too rarely and only after getting so exhausted that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was impossible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> stay awake. So when the steroids seemed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> work and stop the hives for half a day to 3 days, I memorized the feeling and started working towards self inducing that feeling instead of the horrible panic and despair that being covered in ugly painful itching hives constantly tended to make me feel.
1574314_tn?1296204882 There are many other uses. I refused pred for a non-asthma use in 2009. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> took longer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get over the problem, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was a wise choice. Tammy, a friend just told me that she was on cromlyn (sp?) neb the last time she was in the hospital and it worked very well for her. Have you tried that. it is not a good rescue med and is no longer available as an MDI, but it might help you. Also, have you been evaluated for VCD? take care.
Avatar_n_tn it is an important step and your are courageous for making <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. For me, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was a tough decision mainly because of the great unknown of the sx and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I would tolerate it all. The first shot was a little scary but I did it myself in my docs office with her and a nurse watching. She told me I did a good job and that helped a lot. I drove myself home and although mentally felt different knowing it was the start of treatment, physically I felt fine.
Avatar_n_tn Apparently fluid can seep from the back of the nose and go down the throat the brain reacts to stop the fluid going into the lungs which closes the voice box, this then stops you breathing, the brain then realises that the lungs arent working so wakes you up and that is why you wake up coughing and trying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get your breath, this is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was explained <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> me. I have been told that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is not dangerous and that I will always wake up, it is just very stressfull.
Avatar_n_tn This also more frequently for the last 2weeks, has lead <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> an inability <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> breath. This happens anytime for no reason that can be seen and even at night while sleeping. After a 20 seconds or so it clears without the apparent need for an inhaler. The prescribed Asthma medicine does not seem to hold off the problem as the problem seems to be worsening. We have also visited many doctors and they say his lungs are clear. I hope someone can help.
Avatar_f_tn When people stop and give their bodies a chance to heal, a whole bunch of layers of stuff start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> come out. I wrote out this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> cure. I know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> will work but I can't post <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> here. I will put it on my blog simply mimi dot net. You might need some individual coaching on the timing, but it will be easy to take you through now that I walked through it. Come work with me. it's affordable and you have nothing to loose.
Avatar_dr_m_tn Nasal congestion alone doesn't cause obstructive sleep apnea, but it can definitely aggravate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. If your palate and tongue structures are predisposed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> falling back easily due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> sleeping on your back and muscle relaxation in deep sleep, then having a stuffy nose can aggravate further collapse downstream. Untreated obstructive sleep apnea can lead to chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack and stroke.
108861_tn?1227249648 I used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> work for UPS as a part time supervisor, he used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> work construction. Just after Sept 11, he was laid off, due to the homeowners deciding to save their money instead of remodeling their homes. This, in a way, was a good and bad thing, since he'd hurt his back at work several months before lay off, and was hurting really bad every time he went to work. Two months after he was laid off, I got pregnant.
Avatar_n_tn hi i have had a cough that causes my airway to close and makes it very difficult to breathe, they were like coughing spasms , i've had this cough for like 2 months, i've been to the doctor and they told me it has a chest infection and i was probably developing adult on set asthma,( they put me on binozyt for the infection which didnt work then augmentin which helped,)i'm 22 and never really was affect by this coughing problem till now, i was started on asthma meds (seretide diskus, and singulai
1097503_tn?1257398437 But what I wanted to tell you is that itching problem you are fighting is very very similar to something that I had been dealing with for several months - the only release I had was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span></span> antihistamines daily <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> keep me from itching. I finally was sent to a specialist and was diagnosed with "dermatographic uticaria".
