The medicine worked great for allergy and asthma symptoms, but I give it 3 stars overall because of the cost. I was spending $75 per month until I found a coupon at http://www.singulaircoupon.org, and then I paid only $40. Now I just buy the generic form, montelukast, and it works just as well, and I pay even less!

I have experienced constant thoughts of suicide. Didn't know until checking on WebMD that Singulair could cause this.

I have been on Singulair since it was available. It has been a Godsend. I have had asthma for over 40 years. I just realized this evening that the generic is not working for me. My asthma has not been controlled since Oct '12. That is the time my pres was switched to generic. I am on prednisone now and even that is not working. I rarely took my rescue inhaler before Oct. Now I take it 4 ... Show Full Comment

I've taken Singulair for over 18 years and it was very effective and caused no side effects that I was aware of. Recently my phamacy switched me to the generic for of this drug and it has totally failed. I'm now dealing with a severe asthma problem and once again needing to use albuteral inhalers. STAY AWAY FROM GENERIC SINGULAIR if you have had good control with the name brand.
