I have been on Singulair (for asthma) for about two years. I have had no problems. It is part of my treatment program that has improved my health (and lifestyle) considerably. My doc has discussed this warning (and counseled me...’having any depression issues?’) as this has been noted for awhile. My hope is that this class of med should just be monitored closer...that the benefits outweigh the risks. If they take me off Singulair, my next step would be a once a day inhaler (in addition to my rescue inhaler an allergy meds). Those inhalers have risks (sudden death!) as well.
I normally take one Singulair a day. Great stuff, really helps. However one time I took two by mistake. Yep, you will see colors and have the most interesting dreams.
Possible new tag ling: excuse me while I regain control over my agitation, aggression, anxiety, dream abnormalities and hallucinations, depression, insomnia, irritability, restlessness, suicidal ideation and behavior, and tremor.
I’ve been taking Pulmicort for about 6 years and it has changed my life. My asthma symptoms have virtually disappeared. My allergist can’t get over the improvement in my lung capacity. No side effects.
