Hiya there, hope everyone is doing ok.
I've been taking Montekulast (Singulair) for one month exactly today. It's has helped me take control over my Asthma and I'm happy to have it on repeat and I don't have any specific worries about taking it, or any side effects that are affecting me to any great degree, but from reading the boards I'm getting the impression that Singulair is used mainly on people with allergies. I'm not an allergic person at all, I'm descibed as having adult non-allergic Asthma and when the GP prescribed the Montelukast she just said looked up the treatment on the web (presumably some sort of medical encylopedia which gives info and the stages of treatment) and just said it was the next step in the chain and if it didnt settle to go back or if I had any sorts of acute and sudden bursts of symptoms that were not reacting to salbutamol to go to A&E.
I'm confused as to why I'm taking this, when I have no allergies and the GP just said it was ""the next step"" rather than it's used to treat people with allergies.
As I've said it is working and so I'm not too worried just a little confused and wondered if the more medically minded could help me here!
