Thank you, I took Singulair for over a year in which it seemed to work great for allergies and then started having a worsening if symptoms, and developed churg-strauss syndrome. I always warn people about that med-disease connection as it is being correlated although causation has not bern proven. I have heard from others about these neuropsychiatric events. I wouldnt let my child take this med or recommend it to anyone I know due to my personal history and from these new warnings.
KMC, My CSS was diagnosed after a medical crisis-- It was evening and I was struggling to breathe (not long after my ex dropped a bunch of my stuff that was covered in cat and dog dander off to the room I was staying in at my parents house) and I had moved out of his house because of my severe allergies (which seemed controlled with Singualair at first that is why I moved in there but after a year I had asthma symptoms and phlegm and kept needing to go to the ER for breathing treatments and...

Side effects of any Rx - medication is concerning to me as I have documented drugs that I have worse side effects to. Montelukast Rx I've been taking for about 2 yrs for allergic asthma, also, inhaler, nebulizer treatments, for when my allergic asthma is at worse of pollen season. I also use hepa air filters, change filter on my A/C, protective covers on my pillows, mattresses. To date, I've not had bad side effects to Montelukast. However, back in 1988, my allergic asthma was really bad,...
@Mrcurlydad and @katalinfrog - sorry to hear you experienced so many side effects. @Whippetartist - thanks for share your story as well. And, yes, it's important to talk with your doctor if you are experiencing side effects to any medicine.
