26 Sep 2014 Greatly surprised. My nasal passages and throat were raw as hamburger..I took a 10 mg Singulair in desperation. Not only did the allergic soreness go away (and most of the congestion) but I noticed a marked shrinking of my prostate. I also take a 2mg hytrin daily. Singulair in the evening before bed and hytrin when I wake in the morning. Prostatic swelling is practically gone, but if I miss either medication it returns along with urinary problems within hours. I would rate Singulair 10 out of 10. Much to my surprise!

08 Jul 2014 I have year round allergies. Continuous nasal drip, causing coughing, red watery eyes. My doctor prescribed Montelukast 10 mg. The only side a effect was flu like symptoms? She told me to take for 10 days. After reading the scary side effects of this medication, I think I'd rather keep my allergies.

29 Jul 2011 I take this pill along with other allergy medication including allegra, nasonex, and several eye drops. Allergies were a very big issue when spring rolls around. It gets rid of the ichy eye sores and I have stopped sneezing all the time. I do not feel or observe any side effects by taking this medication.
