    As others have noted,this started working almost immediately, within an hour of my first dose. The tightness in my chest that is ALWAYS there went away almost completely. Then about 5 hours later the agitation/anxiety kicked in. And dizziness.And sleeplessness. After 6 days I just couldn't take the side effects anymore and had to stop using it. Very disappointing, because it DOES help the ... Show Full Comment

    I have a history of on and off depression, so I was afraid to take this drug. There are days, however, where my allergies make me feel terrible, with sinus pressure and heavy lungs. On the days where I am beyond miserable, I will take one tablet of Singulair, just to break the symptom cycle. The medicine starts to work within an hour, and other than some initial mild stomach pain and maybe some ... Show Full Comment

After I stopped taking Singulair, the side effects took a very long time to resolve to a more normal state. I do not recommend this product unless no other options are available and the state of ...

    Comment:
    I suddenly developed severe asthma at the age of 60. I could not tolerate medication with steroids so was given Singular. It helped somewhat with asthma symptoms but on the third day of taking it I had terrible neurological side effects. My arms and legs were burning and felt like pins and needles. I also could not think clearly. Also, my heart was racing. I stopped taking it and am afraid to take ... Show Full Comment
