My two year old son has just been prescribed Singulair (4mg, 1 daily, for ten days) as a preventative treatment in an attempt to stop asthma attacks triggered by colds (which ultimately require a trip to the doctors for steroids).
Curious to know what Singulair is, I look it up the website singulair.com, the side effects horrified me.
After a few hours on google I found thousands of negative comments, even a website dedicated to how terrible it is...
I know the web is the number-one source for bad news about anything, but does anyone have anything good to say about Singulair? Please help!
The advice from my doctor is - the possible side effects from Singulair are a better option than the possible side effects from (a short 3 day course of) oral steroids. hmmm.
