Your Opinions on Singulair

I have a 5 yr old daughter who gets a wicked cough a few times a year. This past trip to the ped he suggested we start her on 4 mg of Singulair. My husband is asthmatic and the ped feels that there is a possibility that she may be diagnosed later in life with asthma. She is considered at risk because she has had upper respiratory issues a few times this past winter. My question is that I've heard both good and bad about this medication and I am just concerned. Most of the issues involve behavioral outbursts and children becoming more...

Allergic to the Dog?

My 18-month old has a pretty-much contiuously runny nose. It usually combined with nasal congestion. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to bother her and it doesn't transform into infections or other problems. I suspect she may be allergic to our dog. Is there a way to tell? Is it possible to test for just a dog allergy? Or do I have to subject her to a huge painful test? I really don't want to do that, but if she is allergic I need to konow.

Usage of Singulair on a 12 Months Old

Last weekend my one year old baby had to be taken to the hospital because he was having trouble breathing and was wheezing/dry coughing. He had to stay overnite in the hospital, was given respiratory treatments with Zopenex and an oral stereoid (Oralpred). Today I had to take him to the Pediatrician for follow-up and he's prescribing Singulair to be used for a few weeks, maybe even through the winter season to prevent another episode. My son was diagnosed with RSV when he was 3-months old last December, but have not had any other asthma...

Always Stuffy Nose

My 2 1/2 year old daughter has been having this stuffy nose problem for past 3-4 weeks or so. She's not sick and doing well, but her nose is always stuffy. Not runny or have cold symptoms, but I guess something must be bothering her nose. It's not stuffy 24 hours, but she usually has something in her nose that bothers her and sometimes it's hard for me to watch her being so bothered by her stuffy nose. She hates the saline spray, so when I try to use that on her, she panics and gets upset. And even when I do get that in her nose, it...

Allergy Med for Asthmatic?

Hi! My 4 year-old has viral-induced asthma (only has asthma when sick with a cold and at no other times). He is on Singulair and Flovent regularly and Pulmicort and Albuterol nebulizer treatments when sick. He got a cold on Wednesday and we started his cold-induced asthma plan right away. Our Pulmonary Doctor has said to have him on his sick plan for a few more days. He also ended up with a double ear infection with this cold and he started with antibiotics yesterday. He has had allergy testing and came out negative for...

My 18 month old son was "diagnosed" with season allergies in June of this year. Doctor started him on singulair granules to help with the symptoms. We used them for a few weeks in June and then again over the past two weeks. He recently started itching uncontrollably up by his head, neck, shoulder area. We thought it could possibly be a food allergy although he hasn't eaten anything different. Then I started thinking that it got worse over the past few weeks and seems to have an outbreak right after drinking the singulair in his milk. Is it...
