Common Questions and Answers about Singulair sinus

singulair

What was the problem with Singulair a while back? I heard something about it, but I never heard what the problem was with it.
Now he has a sinus infection, during which he had two mild wheesing episodes at night. The doctor has perscribed an antibiotic and also Singulair. I thought that Singulair was an asthma preventative. If my son has not yet been diagnosed with asthma and we give him singulair and he improves; how will we be able to conclusively determine that his condition is asthma and not just the result of the infection that has been cleared up by the antibiotic?
The Doctor gave me Albuterol, (which helped, but I was using it too frequently), they tried other inhalers which seemed to cause worse effects than the asthma. So my doc gave me Singulair which immediately helped me to breath. Since children were given this I felt it's probably ok to take. After only 3 days my feet started to tingle, my hands and then my legs.
Singulair can cause a rare autoimmune disease called Churg-Strauss. The symptoms of this disease are asthma, pulmonary infiltrates, eosinophilia over 10%(this is one the white blood cells), sinusitis, neuropathy(which can cause nerve damage), and vasculitis(inflammation of blood vessels). My young daughter took Singulair for 2 years and is now believed to have this disease.
PLEASE HELP Let me add that she is NOT in tears because the Singulair has made her depressed, we heard all about that in the news. She is in tears because of the agony she's in because of how BAD her arms and legs feel all the time!!!!!!!!!!!! My daughter is on Singulair and just finished a short course of Prednisone. On her 4th day [last day] of Prednisone, her legs and arms started to feel very weak and heavy and numb[she said they felt "thick"].
It was then that I researched the side effects of my prescribed drugs and determined that I should stop taking the Singulair. My doctor prescribed a replacement for Singulair, and within a month the numbness went away. Over the past few months I have tried to get back into running. I used to run frequently, always training for a 5k, 10k, or half-marathon, so not sprinting. I have never had a problem with my heart rate or my blood pressure, but now I do.
I'm currently on Amoxicillin 500mg for a sinus infection 3x a day for 10-21 days. I'm on my 6th day and it's gotten a little better but I still have a headache, sore throat and some ear pressure. Is there anything else I can do to get rid of these symptoms. I've used the steam, eucalyptus oil and humidifier. Should I try Guaifenesin or singulair?
I have been in severe pain for almost a month now. At first, I was treated for a sinus infection, but then after a CT Scan, they said my sinuses were clear, so now they suspect migraines. I have received no relief with the use of any of the medications. I still feel like all of the symptoms point to, at the least, inflammed sinuses. I have severe pain in my eyes, forehead, checks and temples. Can a CT scan miss inflammed sinuses. I am desperate for some answers and some relief.
I'd take it when my allergies acted up and then after a few weeks I'd go off. When my allergies were really bad I'd go on singulair occasionally as well. I never took them regularly because I didnt want to become immune to them. With the weird seasons that NY has been having this year I have been on both regularly for months and STILL have symptoms, so my Dr. added patanase to help with congestion and fluid in my ears....
Hi, there - I live in DFW and we're iced in right now. Can't get to my dr or to a pharmacy. I suffer from chronic allergies that I take shots for. I'm currently taking Mucinex maximum strength, D-Allergy, singulair, levocitirizine, flonase, & patanase. I'm taking hot showers with tea tree oil, drinking lots of hot tea, and sitting with a heating pad on my head to try to loosen things up but no luck. It looks like I'm going to be stuck in my house for at least another 1-2 days.
I am a 49 yr. old female. I have always had in later years about 1-2 sinus infections per year. However, this year it seems I'm not infected, but have constant pressure in my face and forehead w/ a light headedness that sometimes makes me feel nauseous. When we thought it was an infection, I went thru 2 Z-packs to no avail. Then have been doing different nasal sprays, claritin, singulair, netipot w/ nothing really helping.
A former Mayo researcher is looking for an anti-fungal sinus spray, but nothing yet. I've developed a saline Sinus Flush that dramatically removes any sort of infection from the sinuses. It's slightly risky, because you have to bend over in a shower, but sounds like you're in fine shape. All it does is recreate the water-up-your-nose experience, one that you are familiar with, but with safe hypotonic saline solution.
Using Neil Med saline rinse twice a day, rinsing your sinuses out. I also got prescription Singulair. So if you're not going to the Dr. you'll have to try out different allergy meds over the counter. Got an air cleaner for my bedroom, wash bed things in hot water every week, keep everything clean as possible, vacuuming, dusting. I use a very hot water bottle on my face and back of my head, and take Advils for the pain. And suffer and hope it gets better.
Last November I had endoscopic sinus surgery to clear my sinuses and deviated seputum fixed. I was great for 7 months! Then in June I got a sinus headache and my life has not been the same. I have been to the family doctor, the ENT, allergies and now I am going to a neurologist. My symptoms are burning sensation in cheeks leading to ears and teeth. Throbbing pain in my nose (like pulse or heatbeat), constant headache, darck circles under eyes and severe post nasal drip.
After visiting with the doctor yesterday due to a sinus infection I decided to confess to her about my headaches. :) Headaches that start behind my left eye, always the left. After several of these headaches, starting about 10 years ago, I finally found that Benedryl with a decongestant takes care of it. However, the longer I wait to take the Benedryl the longer it takes to get it under control. So then it radiates to the back of my head and into my shoulder.
Sometimes the neti pot works wonders...some people swear by them! I CAN'T use one, as my sinus' were/are so messed up from past sinus surgeries, and my anatomy, that it doesn't drain until I lay down at night, when it POURS down the back of my throat...I know...lovely... But I digress...the steroid sprays are the way to go, either way, it's FAR better on your system than long term oral prednisone!
I work with pulmonary doctor who sees me for asthma and I use Advair 500/50 along with Allegra D and Singulair and I do regular sinus rinses. I was also sent to see a sinus specialist at University of Iowa who removed a large polyp from left Maxillary. I was hoping after the surgery the symptoms would clear. The surgery was completed in 8/2011 and I've had two flare up since that time. I've been tested for allergies 4 times and the only allergen is cut grass.
Allergy immunizations for 25 yrs. My doctor put me on Singulair and suggested Advair some months later to be used with Singulair. Within 5 days I developed Pneumonia-went to emerg.clinic-nebulizer treatment and antibiotics. I stopped Advair-continued with Singulair. X-rayed and they found suspected nodule-left lower lobe. Had CT scan and lung specialist diagnosed musko-skeletal problem. wants another CT scan in Dec.
In the treatment room was a poster, telling how you should not expect antibiotics for an acute sinus infection, as it leads to antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Thank you. Update 8/26/13 About not using tap water unless it has been boiled. The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush (by friggy) removes infected mucus from every part of your sinuses, which Mayo Clinic research shows is the cure for sinusitis, rather than treating sinus tissue with antibiotics.
Anyways, I heard about a girl (friend of a friend situation) with severe sinus problems. After going through the same hell we are all experiencing (tests, many doctors, no results, etc.) she found some specialists in Germany. They found out that her sinuses were filling up with liquid and had to manually drain them. She has to do this at least once a year apparently, but she can now function.
I had sinus surgery in Jul-2007 after being diagnosed with a chronic sinus infection, and have had consistent sinus pressure in the cheek bones ever since.
At the end of November of 2012 I started developing what I thought was a sinus issue that I get due to allergies 3 or 4 times a year. Symptoms have persisted off and on now for over three months.
this started about a month ago and hasnt stoped since ive been to my dr and to an ent..im on veramyst for allergies and singulair i started these and this all started i stopped them for awhile didnt get any better so i continued with them..
Strep test came back negative, and I have already had mono before. Assuming it was a sinus infection, they prescribed amoxicillin, and that took care of the symptoms in under a week. About two weeks after being off of the amoxicillin, the symptoms began to return. I went back to the doctor and the prescribed some different antibiotic, which again, worked fine. Yet again, a few weeks after being done with that antibiotic, the symptoms returned.
I have sinus congestion 24 hours a day. I am taking Singulair, Zyrtec...I have tried Nasonex, Flonase, etc. I started allergy shots about 8 months ago. The only relief I get is from Afrin, and that doesn't even last the 12 hours. (I don't want to hear about how you shouldn't take it for more than 3 days either!) My family doctor had put me on the Z-pack and Biaxin and it works for a SHORT period of time, if at all, and then I go back to the congestion.

I have been having problems for the past 4 years! I will have sinus infection after another, i cant get rid of it. my sinuses will become blocked and full and i will have have so much pressure and pain in my face, head, ears, eyes, teeth. i have had so many ct scans of my face, i have had some say that my sinuses where blocked and that i have smaller passage ways to the sinuses like behind my nose inbetween my eyes, i have seen on a ct scan where my whole facial sinus was full and blocked.
I'm also using singulair and duratuss. I think what got me to turn the corner today was the nasalcrom and sinus irrigations, together with saline steam. Hope this helps.
Ok as most other question on here, I am 28 male, who has had bad sinus trouble for about 10 years now. Where i live there isn;t much choice in doctors, not that we have bad health care, its just a small spot, ( prince edward island, canada) So I have been on every nose spray/pill/ anything u can think of, nothing works. I was told i need surgery, I have been so scared I have put it off 3 times now in the last few years. But I have finially stepped up and decided its time.
It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned. Could allergies have led to a sinus infection? Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
