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.
