Discussions that mention singulair

Children's Health board


Our 9 yr. old boy has had a chronic cough for 4 1/2 years. He coughs several times a day. He has been seen by pediatricians, ER doctors, pulmonologists and ENTs. He has been treated for postnasal drip, cough-variant asthma and sinusitis. He has tested negatively for allergies 2 times. He tested negative on a sweat test. His cough gets worse with an upper respiratory infection but the cough has never gone away. He has taken Singulair, Prednisone, Zyrtec, Augmentin, Tannate cough medicine, Claritin, Astelin, Nasonex, Flovent and Albuterol. None of it has worked. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
