I stopped taking for over a month then tried again. on the second dose two da ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
A lot of negative reviews are from parents giving this medicine to their children. Montelukast is only for patients 15 and older. I haven't had any side effects. Since starting Singulair (generic) I seldom have to use my inhaler. I used to get bronchitis following every cold I got; no bronchitis since starting Singulair. Although I still get upper respiratory allergy symptoms, Singulair is gre ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Worst experience of my life, took it for bad allerigies ended up with night terrors thoughts of hurting myself, others and even my dog.

I best advice for someone going through this is find a person you can trust that you can cal ... Show Full Comment
