stopping singulair


I'm between doctors at the moment (just moved to uni), other wise i would ask there.

Before I left home, my doctor agreed to me stopping singlair over the winter months, see how I get on.

I'm just wondering if anyone knows if the symptoms were to come back, how quickly would it be? I realise the drug must stay in the body for a certain number of hours.

  • Hi

    Did you find Singulair helped you at all? I found it made no difference - so I came off it. I also take seretide and uniphyllin tablets. Seems that it is really good for some and has no effect on others.


  • Hi Christine,

    I'm not sure exactly how long Singulair stays in the body once you stop taking it, but I can't imagine that it's more than a few days. I'm guessing that if you haven't had any ill effects in a week or two, then you are probably managing without it - although of course if you get a viral infection, that will be another test of your control without it!

    Do make sure you register with a local doctor as soon as you can, won't you?

    Take care
