Singulair ingredients

Common Questions and Answers about Singulair ingredients


Hi, from the composition given, it does not appear to have mint. Each 10-mg film-coated singulair tablet contains 10.4 mg montelukast sodium, which is equivalent to 10 mg of montelukast, and the following inactive ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose, lactose monohydrate, croscarmellose sodium, hydroxypropyl cellulose, and magnesium stearate.
My allergist wants to test me with Singulair for Seborrheic Dermatitis. Is that a med. that you would use for the dermatitis? I am allergic to so may meds and foods that reading up on Singulair I find that it is used for asmah not dermatitis. What do I do, go through all the testing to see if I can even take Singulair and it sounds scarry to me to take that medicine. One of the meds that I'm allergic to is asprin.
I went and seen a doctor about this and was told I have allergies, I was perscribed the generic for singulair for 10 days, and zyrtec for about 2 weeks to see if I got better. I opted to take the medicine at night (tonight)...and i can't sleep and my throat is so dry even after water. I really dis like medicine...I get anxious...what are some other options to feel better?... HELP!
Kimberly, I just did a google search and found a lot of hits for "singulair swallowing", that agree with your statement that singulair often causes difficulty swallowing. Even after the swelling has gone down, your son could still be left with that panicky feeling of not being able to swallow - my father in law has a condition that causes his throat to close around food and it's a PANIC for him - it's awful.
Prednisone (steroids) finally got me on my feet...and now I'm on Singulair, a prescription, but also NasalCrom which is over the counter, and using the saline nasal rinse every day, and that has helped tremendously. Also using an air cleaner in my bedroom. I also never blow anything out! So....I'm not a dr., but try the saline rinse and NasalCrom, and maybe see if that helps. I found this forum out of desparation, too.
Some soaps contain milk ingredients from what I recall ????
Yes, it is possible to have constant shortness of breath with asthma. That is how I started and still am like when it is out of control. The one good news is that steroid inhalers work very well for asthma and do relieve the chest tightness, shortness of breath and any other symptoms you may have. You said that you were a smoker? Did you doctor check to make sure you don't have chronic bronchitis? Do you have a cough, and produce mucous? This is very important thing to treat early.
Advair 500(I've been on the 500 for 1 month now, but 250 for the past 6 years), Singulair(I've been on it for the past 8 years), Albuterol. All of my doctors have told me it's not rosacea. My facial rash on a good day:
Albuterol inhaler Allergy shots Diovan 320 mg Klor-con 10 mg Lexapro 10 mg Synthroid 112mcg Singulair 10 mg Xanax 0.5 mg prn Zyrtec 10 mg Zantac 150 Meds recently taken off: Advair 100/50 mg Atenelol 50 mg Celebrex Diovan HCT 320/25 mg Hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg Norco Soma I am sick and tired of this entire thing and I just don't know which way to turn.
I do not know if you are aware but singulair has dairy in it. (At least the tablets that are not chewable.) Also I do not know if affects behavior or cognition, but I am guessing it does but it also has aspartame and the by products in the body are wood alcohol and formaldehyde. Here is some info about artificial sweeteners:
Singulair and Atrovent(7 days so far)- No real change noted Me: In very good health, workout 6 days a week, do not smoke, rarely drink. Possible causes: PND, Sinusitis, Exercise induced broncoconstriction (never been diagnosed with Asthma), an Autoimmune disease, Vasomotor rhinitis..... What do you think my condition is and how should I go about treating it?
ALSO, just because it is not listed on the ingredients list, doesn't mean there isn't anything in it. FDA doens't require ingredients that are less than 2% quantitative within the ingredients. all organic and whole is the way to go if you have food allergies!!!
He has been allergy tested by 2 different allergists only to show positive for cockroaches. He takes Singulair and Flovent daily, Xopenex as needed and has been on pulmicort, Zyrtec and nasonex. This last Croup attack Tuesday was a 911 call. It came on with in an 1 hour of us checking on him in bed. He was in severe respitory distress and had to be given Epinepherine 4 times at the hospital. He also has Decadron on every attack.
Advair, Singulair, Neonase, Albuterol, Combivent plus benedryl and if that doesn't work, I go to Zyrtec then to Allegra... I also drink a ton of Dayquil when it gets really bad.... Take Mucinex and other mucous thinners. It's been very hard to just get gulps of air.... Sigh. So Prednisone went in at 7 am today. I've been terrified that I'd have to take the Prednisone - for fear of "reactivating" the HepC virus... But because Dr.
I forgot to write in my post first off that i tried Singulair too... but that was hopeless! It ended up being 100 times worse, getting rashes under my arms and down my forearms.. it was awful. Plus they cost a fortune!! A waste of money!! I have to agree with you dabomb... the itching just drives me crazy some days! I've forgotten what it was like not having hives! I really want to try Quercetin.. natural antihistamine.
4th visit for concussion said take Motrin almost had 5th visit started with hives, new the drill Benadryl, Pepcid, Allegra thankfully she only took one dose. Looked up the ingredients of all three to find a common ingredient. Found polyethylene glycol (Miralax) and PEGs. She had suffered with impacted stool and took this for 3 months in "05" and when needed. She had a fever of 104 for 4 days "Aug 09" after that the problems began.
The body can't really use that form of calcium, and the things are full of many artificial ingredients and mineral oils. DGL is a reasonable alternative, if you don't find yourself sensitive to licorice root, like I am. So, that stuff didn't help me at all. It might work for other people, though.
• Other irritants can inflame the nasal passages, such as air pollution, cigarette smoke, cigar smoke, and perfumes made from synthetic ingredients. Once again, see your doctor, or avoid the irritants. • Asthma is an immune disease, and asthma sufferers are highly susceptible to sinusitis. About 3 out of 4 people with asthma also have chronic sinusitis. There is evidence that some asthma and the chronic sinusitis associated with it is caused by Chlamydia or mycoplasma bacteria.
I use rescue inhalers at the rate of 1 a week, daily nebulizer treatments, Singulair, Symbicort, and have become Prednisone dependent as well. The long-term use of Prednisone has caused steroid induced diabetes and cataracts, which can't be removed as long as I am still on steroids. My adrenals have stopped working on their own because of the long term use of steroids, and I go into adrenal failure when my docs try tapering me off. I was active, thin and healthy before contracting pertussis.
I am already on Zyrtec and Singulair for allergies and asthma. I have alot of allergies to meds, perfumes, colognes, laundry soap, air freshners, anything from the ocean, cats, pollen and ragweed. I noticed I was starting to itch on Tuesday night. Well by Thursday I was covered in hives everywhere. By Thursday night I had to use 2 Epi-Pens, 100mg of Benedryl, Albuterol inhaler and start a 10mg dose pack of Prednisone. My eyes were swollen shut, my throat was swelling shut and OMG the itching.
A week after I saw an allergist and he couldn't figure it out either. He put me on Singulair and Zyrtec D at the end of March 07 to see if either of those would help. At the beginning of April of 07 the hives just disappeared. I'm not sure if the Paxel kicked in or the Allergy medicine worked. The hives stayed away completely until June 23rd of 07 and they are becoming as bad as they used to be in Nov-April.
I have narrowed down the culprit myself by comparing ingredients of the things that give me the reaction, but I can't find another person locally that has the same problem.
Hi, I saw this while researching my problem, and I registered because I just HAD to post! I'll say to everyone, I feel your pain, and how! About two weeks ago, I got sick, and it's the first time I had these coughing fits. It feels like you are choking, and sometimes even coughing violently doesn't help. It happens maybe 4-5 times a day, and when I saw some of the other posts people post here, I knew I wasn't alone with this problem.
From there many allergy tests were performed and it was determined that he was allergic to a number of things (grasses, trees, etc). For about 6 months he was just taking xyzal, and singulair, along with a nasal steroid spray called nasonex. He also has an epi-pen for emergencies that we havent had to use. He is still currently taking those medications. They started allergy shots about 4 1/2 months ago and he is still currently taking those as well.
I can also tell you that I am under some of the most stress ever at this time. I started Singulair, an anti-depressent for the stress, vitamin B, and tetracycline, (for acne). Still no help. Most everything stings my lips, (foods, etc.). It does not matter what the weather is like outside, (winter or summer). I believe it has a lot to do with stress. I had eczema on the inside of my elbows when I was a child. I have fair skin.
The two current soaps do not specify palm oil in the ingredients so it must be something else in the mix that I become sensitized to over time. Looking for a new bath soap. Laundry soap seems to be okay (sent free, HE All, machine set to second rinse).
For the most part I eat "health food" - and defintely buy products without preservatives or artificial ingredients whenever possible. I defintiely haven't been consuming anything with aspartame ( I heard years ago that the stuff was pretty bad for you). Although - the idea of something in food causing the pain is one I have been contemplating. Someone mentioned citric acid as causing similar symptoms. I do believe I eat/drink things that have added citirc acid.
