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

Comment:
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. My doctor suggested this and it was like a life saver for my allergies. The only side effects I have noticed is every now and then I'll have some pretty strange/vivid dreams. I ... Show Full Comment
