after many sleepless nights due to my 3 yr old's constant coughing and months of battling his asthma and chest infections I went to see the doctor today as I really don't feel we have his asthma totally under control despite using becotide inhaler & ventolin as & when needed. Anyway, the doctor was really nice and understanding and has now prescribed him 'Singulair' to use in conjunction with his other meds. He will be having the chewable kind. We have to pick it up tomorrow as the pharmacy has to order it.
Has anyone else's child used this medication? I have been reading on the General forum about the many side effects people have experienced and now I am concerned. My doc said he didn't think we would have any trouble. He also said it's amazing how quickly Singulair gets asthma under control.
Would love to hear back from anyone with experience with this. THANKS!
