The information below should not be taken as a substitute for qualified medical advice. Consult your health care provider before taking Singulair.
Singulair is a medication prescribed to people with conditions that cause breathing problems, such as asthma and allergies. The medication prevents asthma attacks and relieves symptoms associated with hay fever. Symptoms and attacks are gradually reduced after several weeks of taking Singulair; it is not designed to immediately stop an asthma attack. It is also prescribed to relieve severe shortness of breath during exercise, a condition called bronchoconstriction.
The drug works by blocking leukotrienes, which are chemicals released in the body after the patient breathes in pollen or another allergen. Leukotrienes trigger asthma attacks and breathing problems by causing the lungs and airways to swell. The muscles around the airways then constrict, causing the patient to gasp for air.
For asthma and allergy patients, Singulair is taken once a day, usually in the evening, and can be taken before or after a meal. To prevent bronchoconstriction during exercise, patients should take Singulair two hours before starting to exercise. Only one dose of Singulair can be taken each day. It can be used either for preventing asthma/allergies or for preventing bronchoconstriction, but not both.
Patients who are taking medications to control seizures should not take Singulair. Singulair may not work in patients taking antibiotics prescribed for tuberculosis and other similar bacterial infections.
