My daughter is on it. I guess I'll have to check on her more now and keep sharp objects out of reach.
My allergist recommended it for sinusitis, which he says it also works for. I never noticed any significant difference being on it or not so I quit. No sense in spending the money and putting up with the side effects if I don’t have to. Funny thing is, one of the listed side effects for Singulair is rhinitis. So I was wondering just how much the stuff would be helping.
However, the side effects were nothing to what I went through on Zyrtec. That stuff is BAAADDD!!!
I’ve beem on it for a long period without problems.
I am currently on Spriva, Advair, Zyrtec, Benedryl (when I need the reinforcements like now with pollen), and Proventil.
No problems at all and these are long term meds.
My 15 year old son has been on it for at least 6 years now, and hasn’t had a problem, except maybe the tremors (although I think the hand tremors are from something else).
It would be interesting to see whether the suicidal tendencies are right after starting, or if they can occur with long-term use....
