Common Questions and Answers about Singulair problems


460830 tn?1347222906 What was the problem with Singulair a while back? I heard something about it, but I never heard what the problem was with it.
Avatar m tn He stopped taking Singulair in Nov.2013, but his muscle problems remained. I am not 100% sure whether it was caused by Singulair and if yes how long he will have to wait until the effect is gone. Could this be Churg-Strauses? As parents, we are VERY worried. He needs sleep. He used to play sports, just like other boys, but now he can't do anything. He is tired all the time. Could you please contact me at ***@**** if you have any info? Please help save my son!
Avatar n tn lately my overnight breathing is causing me problems. i asked my gp for singulair but she prescribed atrovent. it does get mucus up but i am waking to cough it up. i have excersize induced asthma. it was on this site that i heard about singulair.
Avatar m tn I have discovered that I can buy generic Singulair (montelukast) at enormous savings from a online Canadian pharmacy. The pharmacy is certified by the Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA). The drug is manufactured in India. Is there any reason not to do this?

Avatar n tn In the past month he's really been struggling with breathing problems. He went to a different pulmonologist that put him back on Singulair, Advair (bigger dosage), Provetil (rescue inhaler), Claritin, and a drug for acid reflux--starts with 'o' but I can't remember the name. Anyway, after 2 days on this new regimen (hasn't started taking the Claritin though) the itching started. Has anyone else had this experience with Singulair?
Avatar n tn I discontinued Singulair because it interrupted my sleep with stressful dreams and nightmares. I can't imagine why they'd tell you the sleep problems couldn't be due to the Singulair - it says right on the Singulair Website that "vivid dreams" is one of the side effects.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn Thats funny that Singulair can cause nuero problems because I used singuliar a while back and around the same time I started having serious panic attacks. Maybe there is a link but I have no idea.
Avatar f tn I know of one person who had blood pressure changes/problems while on singulair or the combination of singulair and something together at the same time. Either way blood pressure did not return to normal until they discontinued cingulair and it worked out of their system. I wonder if a change in BP may have added to this side effect? This could have been an isolated side effect, dunno. Just wondering if her BP and pulse was normal while on cingulair?
Avatar f tn Hello, I'm a 45 year old man, in pretty good shape. Workout every other day 5'11" 185lbs. History of seasonal allergies and sinsus problems. No history of Asthma. In November 2015, I had a really bad allergic reaction to a coworkers perfume and had a very difficult time recovering from it. In February 2016, my doctor prescribed Advair 250/50, once a day and Singulair 10mg at bedtime.
Avatar m tn My girlfriend suffers from chronic asthma, which has resulted in nearly annual hospital stays. She found a specialist that seemed to have a temporary solution- daily Advair and Singulair medication (high dose) and Prednisone treatments every few months during recurring problems.
Avatar m tn hav been taking singulair for 3 years. Cramps in fingers, throat and leg occured common. Shoulders drooped. Standing and sitting posture gone really bad. Extreme tiredness 24X7. Always thirsty even after gulping bottles of water. Inactive physically and mentally. Become even more inferior in social gatherings and activities. Can't even meet minimum commitments and thus affects career and personal, family relationships. After dropping Everything became normal after 8 - 10 days.
Avatar n tn I am currently taking Allegra-D and Singulair for my allergies. My doctor had prescribed me to Pata-a-Day Eye Drops as well, but they became too expensive and weren't working very well, so i switch to an over the counter brand. My medicine is obviously not working very great either. Does anyone know of an effective treatment that will help me with this? Thanks.
Avatar f tn I was just prescribed singulair and prilosec. I will start a cannabis regimen as well. Should i have any problems?
645800 tn?1466864555 Also Zyrtec allergy pills everyday and Singulair. My insurance will not pay for Singulair at all. Rinsing my sinuses with saline and taking Mucinex. I take a lot of Mucinex this time of year. I used to take Benydrl and Chlortrimeton but they dried me out and impacted the mucus. I now hardly even need my Symbicort much less Albuteral. I used to have to sleep in a recliner. Eating was a bear because of choking. Now I can't recall the last time I choked.
1136103 tn?1260671275 I take singulair, clarinex-d and lipo-flavonoid (for ringing in the ear) also the jelly or goo I am seeing happens almost everyday or every other day, every week is different.
Avatar n tn Hi, I do know that certain foods do cause migraines to get worse, such as aged cheese, chocolate, coffee, some breads with gluten can cause problems, wheat flour, corn, You might try eliminating these from the diet and then gradually adding them back and see how you feel. I do know from experience that a good fast can help and drinking fresh vegetable juice to cleanse the body. If you are say 100 lbs you half it and drink 50 ounces of water.
Avatar n tn Since April of 2009, I have been having strange urinary problems. For about 3 weeks, I had increased urinary frequency and urgency, as well as painful urination. This seemed to come with thirst and dry mouth. The frequency and urgency have gone, as well as the increased thirst and dry mouth, but I am still stuck with painful urination. The urine now appears foamy as well. The pain is a burning when urinating, and then I get a lingering pain down what feels like the whole urethral tube.
Avatar f tn I suffer from Asthma, COPD secondary to Asthma, Lung Fibrosis secondary to RA, Supraventricular Tachycardia secondary to Lung problems, Hypertension, Osteoporosis, Depression and Anxiety. My conditions have been confirmed by Open lung biopsy, EPS studies of the heart, echocardiogram (also shows Pulmonary Hypertension) and Mitral Valve reflux, Bone density tests and I am being treated by a pschyciatrist for Depression and Anxiety.
Avatar n tn Have they considered Singulair? Just wanted to add my comment on the asthma. I am certain Dr.Lupo will have much to add .. great question.
Avatar m tn Later I have upper chest infection, wheezing, and when the buildup in my chest gets bad enough, major breathing problems (especially when trying to sleep), and spasmodic coughing to the point of unconsciousness at times. I lost my job and my medical coverage and have been taking Prednisone, 15mg per day, as a stop gap.
Avatar f tn You could ask your doctor for another brand of steroid like pulmicort that may not bother you as much. Another possibility is to try singulair which helps allergy based asthma and is a once a day pill.
591925 tn?1218986310 Thursday morning I had gone to my family doctor for vertigo, and nasal issues (which he put me in Singulair) which had been off and on since last month when I had an ear infection (and took Avelox). I didn't think to ask him about the stomach issue since it was so mild at that point. That night (Thursday) I went on vacation with my family and became very nauseated and sick. I was not able to eat dinner, drank a water and ate crackers and slept most of the evening.
Avatar f tn A couple of weeks later, I was in the emergency room with breathing problems, and I have been having breathing problems ever since. I have had asthma since I was very young, but it has been very well controlled for the past 12 years (no trips to the emergency room & only used a rescue inhaler a few times per year). My peak flow readings have been good (550+) throughout this entire process, even when I am feeling my worst.
Avatar n tn I have had the same problems for several years. Duke University Medical Center is where I went for my problems. They have several doctors that are excellent in this field. Two of those are Dr. D'Amico and Dr. Eubanks. If you need any information, please send email.
Avatar m tn I started taking klonopin and I could sleep better but I'm still exhausted and foggy even on cpap and wheeze on exhale after I got the flu. I tried exercising, theophylline, prednisone, dulera, singulair, zyfil and saw 15 doctors. Is there a cure or medicine for my sleep breathing disorder? I'm not that overweight at 190 pounds but would UPPP, tongue coblation, tonsilectomy and septum surgery help me? I'm very happy to do the surgery soon Thanks so much!!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn My Dad had asthma, and I have been tested for lung function several times (in the last few years) because I've had breathing problems on and off for the last few years now. The tests came back with better than average lung function. I've also had heart x-rays, lung x-rays-the whole gamut of standard tests-everything above average (the latest tests were done a year ago).
Avatar n tn I had my tonsils out a few years ago, and I have not had any problems until recently. A few months ago, I went to the doctor with a very sore throat and severe congestion. 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.
