Re: Adding Singular to the regime?

I was in a similar situation. Singulair by itself didn't do a lot for me, but in conjunction with my Allegra and Advair it did help. I was also on Flonase and Astelin at the same time as well.

I wish you well in your treatment.

I take Singulair in addition to Allegra and Flovent. The combination works well for me.

I think that is what I am hoping to get accomplished with this - I have a hacky cough, especially at night.

Anyone out there have reflux as well? do you feel the asthma meds make that worse???

Re: Adding Singular to the regime?

Odds are reflux is coming from the post nasal drip . Nothing like mucus to upset the stomach and cause acid. I always took a Zantac before bed when I had my post nasal drip this summer.

Re: Adding Singular to the regime?

I have tons of posts on here reflecting the story of my allergy/asthma/acid reflux cycle issues. All 3 issues cause a chronic cough for me so it is very hard to know what my triggers are at any given time. They usually just hit all 3 for treatment.

I took PPI's twice a day. Once in the a.m. and once before bedtime usually. I'm now on Dexilant which is time released so it is once per day. I supplement with Zantac at night.
