I started taking Montelukast at the end of last year, and it has been FANTASTIC. I think it has been far more effective than various inhaled steroids/long acting relievers etc.
I did have problems sleeping for a couple of months, but that's gone now.
After starting it, I felt only minimally bad when waking up in the mornings (although would be back to feeling bad if I forgot to take it even only once). However, I've suddenly realised that I'm feeling bad in the mornings again. Is it possible that somehow I'm responding less to it after 7ish months?
I'm reluctant to start messing around with what I'm taking/not taking at the moment, as I have lots of trips planned imminently. However, I'll barely be in the UK for the rest of the year, so I guess I do need to get it sorted. Also planning a lot of mountain climbing in remote areas of the globe... (which I'm not particularly good at!!)
Oh, whilst on the subject of mountain climbing - pred makes my calf muscles really hurt, which is (OK, a relatively minor) annoyance when doing a lot of walking. I guess there's nothing that will stop that?
