I've been taking Singulair since July, and it's been like a wonder drug for me, before | started on it I was constantly getting puffed out and having to sit down at work, since I started it I've been absolutely fine, with hardly any problems at all.
My problem is that since around August I've been having dizzy spells, not so severe that I can't walk, but bad enough that I don't trust myself to ride my moped anymore, and I'm having to work the evening shifts at work cos they're less hectic and so cause me less problems, plus I'm less likely to cause an accident at work. This also means my social life is suffering, and it's been going on so long now I'm starting to feel really frustrated, and I'm concerned that I could end up with depression as a result.
I've seen my GP several times about it, had my ears checked and my bloods done, and there doesn't seem to be any cause that he can find. He now seems to have washed his hands of me completely, the last time I went he said that he ""thinks it's a problem with my balance mechanism in which case it will probably eventually right itself."" which doesn't help me any since it's not a definite diagnosis and there's no way of knowing how long I'll be like this.
He did also mention that it could be a side effect of the singulair, but since that's been working so well we were both reluctant to stop it. That was a couple of months ago now, and with no end in sight I'm really considering stopping it. I have no wish to go back to my GP to discuss it, I have a very poor relationship with him and find it really difficult to communicate with him, a lot of the time it doesn't seem like he listens to anything I say.... he even said that he could see no reason why I couldn't ride the moped!
Sorry it's such a long post, but I'd really value your opinions on this, it'd be great to hear if other people have had similar side effects too.
Hope you're all doing well,
