Re: Does Anyone Use Singulair?

Singulair is an anti-leukotryene (spelling?). I'm sure you're familiar with antihistimines, which block histimines. Histimines cause reactions like runny nose, etc. Well, Singulair blocks leukotryenes which work similarly. If allergic reactions are causing asthma attacks, this can help prevent them. A lot of people use it to control allergy symptoms. Were you having a lot of asthma attacks? Why did your doc put you on it? If you were having attacks, and now you are having fewer, then it is probably doing something. If you weren't having asthma attacks, or other allergy symptoms like runny nose, itchy eyes, etc., then I don't know why you're on it.
