About Singulair

Singulair is the brand name for montelukast, a leukotriene inhibitor that helps to prevent the action of the substances in the body that cause the swelling of the lungs and tightening of the muscles around a person's airways. Singulair was approved by the FDA in 1998.[6]

Singulair is a prescription medication manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Merck, and is used to help control asthma symptoms, but is not a rescue medication. It can be used to help prevent asthma attacks and to help treat seasonal allergies.[7] The drug may be prescribed to children over 12 months of age to help control asthma attacks, or over 2 for the relief of allergy symptoms.[8]

Singulair is available in tablet, granule, and chewable tablet form, and is typically administered once daily, with or without a meal. Like many medications, Singulair may cause side effects. Common Singulair side effects include headche, fatigue, heartburn, and pains in the stomach. Serious side effects may also occur. Patients taking Singulair may monitored for these potentially serious adverse reactions, including behavior changes, depression, difficulty sleeping, rash, symptoms mirroring the flu, and problems swallowing.[9]
