My husband and I noticed a change in our daughter when she first started this medication but we never thought it could be the singular.

I have been using the brand name medication for more than 10 years since it is very effective in preventing my asthma attacks. About 14 years ago, I moved to PA and experienced uncontrollable asthma until I started on Singulair. I do experience a couple of side effects- sleep problems and I have lost my sense of smell.

Comment:
I use Singulair in the evening for asthma. I use it with a medication that has an inhaled steroid/long-acting bronchodilator in it. I need to use both of the medications together so that I don't wake up at night. The only side-effect I get is that my dreams are strange and vivid.
