Have noticed how so many of you have had success with your children taking Singulair and am now in a dilemma about Leo (our 3 yr old son) and what decision to make regarding the above.
As some of you will know from my previous posts, he was on Singulair for a couple of months but we stopped it due to him getting insomnia when taking it, literally not sleeping until gone 11pm and then waking by 5-5.30am every day and not sleeping at all during the day. He also got some behavioural changes too. Leo is an extremely placid, gentle little boy but became very stroppy and unreasonable after taking Singulair for a while. Even his nursery commented on the complete change of character.
He was back to his old self within a week of stopping them but has since ended up in OOH several times and was admitted for 3 days just a few weeks ago due to an asthma attack
His consultant has suggested putting him on a form of Theophyllin (Slophyllin?) instead, or to try the Singulair instead.
I have heard mixed reviews about Theophyllin so I'm not sure what to do, has anyone else had experience of it with their child?
Also, has anyone else experienced similar side effects to Singulair? Was wondering if they might subside after him being on it for a while if we try it again and persevere?
Any thoughts/suggestions would be great fully received as we are due to see his consultant again on 25th April
On a positive note he seems to be doing well on the Seretide.
Best wishes to all
