I've been taking this drug since I was 17..I'm 26 now. I used to have SEVERE seasonal allergies and the only thing that would work would be benadryl but I couldn't take that during the day due to drowsiness.

I am 65 and overall healthy and fit for my age. My doctor prescribed Singulair for mild hyperinflation, carbon dioxide trapped in the lung due to an allergic/asthma situation. I have taken 6 doses, and my breathing has improved; however, within an hour of taking it I have heart palpitations and nervousness, and my heart rate goes to 115.

Did not read side effects when I got this medicine, been on it a week. Although I can breath better and my eyes are not red all the time, I have noticed severe changes in my mental capacity.

People keep asking me if I am alright. ... Show Full Comment

I am 52 years old and have been dealing with an allergic asthma/cough for 5-6 years now. Nothing has stopped it until Singulair. However, i have been taking it for 2 weeks and I feel like HELL! Right away I got severe numbness and pain in my arms, legs, hands, feet, and spine. I also developed an on again, off again fever of 100. I had a severe headache that finally went away after a week.

Comment:
I have had life-long allergic asthma. A couple of years ago, I moved to a state where the pollen count is very high and started having to use my rescue inhaler daily. My doctor put me on montelukast and no more asthma. I am so grateful! I have had no noticeable side effects, in over a year. This is a wonder drug, in my opinion, and one I plan to stay on.
