Singulair

Singulair tablets are a type of medicine taken by patients with asthma. The treatment halts the production of a specific natural substance in the lungs to reduce the risk of asthma symptoms and attacks occurring.


The tablets are taken on a daily basis and help protect users from asthma symptoms particularly if exposed to triggers like exercise or pollen. Singulair is not used exclusively for emergency situations but rather on a consistent basis, even when a patient is feeling well.

  • Montelukast is a medication that comes in tablet form and is not an inhaler like most other asthma medications
  • Montelukast should only be taken if your inhaler medications don't adequately manage your asthma
  • You need to take all of your prescribed medications - Montelukast isn't meant to repalce your reliever or preventer inhaler
  • Montelukast shouldn't be taken when you experience an asthma attack. You should use your reliever inhaler for this
  • You should take ONE montelukast tablet DAILY even if you aren't experiencing symptoms of asthma at that time.

  • You have an allergy to montelukast
  • You've used this treatment in the past and suffered from serious side effects

What is Singulair?

Singulair are medicinal tablets taken to prevent asthma symptoms and attacks. This treatment works by preventing the lungs from producing a certain substance that can cause the symptoms of asthma. These tablets can also be used to treat hay fever in people with asthma and to treat asthma symptoms induced by exercise.

When prescribed Singulair, the tablets are taken on a daily and consistent basis until the course is completed. Rather than being taken just in response to symptoms flaring up, the chances are that patients will be feeling well most (if not all) of the time they take a dose of this medicine.

How does Singulair work?

This medicine is a leukotriene receptor antagonist, which means it prevents the lungs from producing a natural substance called leukotriene. This substance can cause the symptoms of asthma since it causes narrowing and swelling of the airways in the lungs.

To block the lungs from this substance, Singulair uses an active ingredient called montelukast. Without leukotriene, the bronchi in the lungs is prevented from becoming inflamed and generating mucus. This solution is effective enough that doctors may prescribe Singulair to patients if they risk triggering asthma attacks from exercise or when exposed to pollen (leading to hay fever).

How do I take Singulair?

One 10mg tablet of Singulair is taken once a day as prescribed by your doctor. It should be taken even if you are showing no symptoms or had an acute asthma attack earlier in the day. Singulair tablets can be taken with or without food. Asthma is a long-term disease, so it’s important to remember that this medication should be taken for as long as your doctor prescribes.

What are the side effects of Singulair?

Side effects are a possibility while taking Singulair, although not everybody will experience any. The most commonly reported side effects associated with taking this medication include abdominal pain and headaches. These symptoms are usually described as being mild. Other symptoms reported fairly often include:

  • Upper respiratory infection
  • Diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting
  • Rash
  • Fever
  • Elevated Liver Enzymes

Other potential side effects can be more serious but are also a rarity. If you do experience any side effects that are worrying, then you should contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Can I take Singulair?

Singulair tablets are meant for adults and adolescents aged 15 or older who are at risk of asthma symptoms when exposed to potential triggers of an asthma attack. It’s important to note that these tablets are not designed to treat acute asthma attacks. If an attack does occur, you should follow the instructions your doctor has given you and you should keep a suitable inhaler with you in case of such attacks.

Before taking this drug, you should make your doctor aware of any medical problems or allergies you have currently or have had in the past. The same recommendation applies if you’re pregnant, breast-feeding or planning to get pregnant. Your doctor will assess if any of your medical history means that taking Singulair or similar treatments could pose a risk to you. One potential factor that could prevent you from taking this medication is if you have an intolerance to some sugars because these tablets contain lactose.

You should also make your doctor or pharmacist aware of any other medicines you’ve recently used or are currently taking, as some can disrupt the effects of Singulair or vice versa. These particular medicines are especially worth highlighting if you happen to be taking any of them:

  • Phenobarbital (used for treating epilepsy)
  • Phenytoin (used for treating epilepsy)
  • Rifampicin (used for treating tuberculosis and some other infections)
  • Gemfibrozil (used for treating high lipid levels in plasma)
  • Any other medication that contains leukotrienes

What if I take too much or too little Singulair?

If you take more Singulair tablets than you should have, speak to your doctor as soon as possible for advice. There were no side effects reported in the majority of overdose reports associated with this drug. However, in some cases, symptoms reported to have occurred including the following:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Sleepiness
  • Thirst
  • Headache
  • Vomiting
  • Hyperactivity

If you miss a dose of this medication, then just resume the usual schedule from the next day onwards. Do not take a double dose to compensate for a forgotten one. Taking Singulair on a consistent basis as instructed is the most effective way to treat your asthma. If you stop taking the medication or regularly forget to take doses, then it will be harder to keep your condition under control.
