Has anyone had montelukast and seen no benefits? I was told there was a good chance it doesnt always work when my 2 year old son started it a month ago. He was also on a trial of either montelukast or placebo for 6 months before with no improvement. He had a dna test to check his likeliness to respond as part of the trial with barts in london but we dropped out after 6 months as the hcp wanted to give the definite montelukast a full time trial. I am going to ask if we can find out early or if we have to wait until next january.
We really havent seen a positive change and he had to have a weeks course of prednisolone despite the montelukast. The only change it madr has been in his behaviour although it obviously may be a huge coincedence but he has gone from a very placid easy going boy to a very aggressive child so suddenly. They have suggested that as there hasnt been an improvement after a month we can stop until his next review in two weeks and see if his behaviour improves.
Anyone had similar where it hasnt helped? Im partly hoping his behaviour is a side effect as it is awful but at the same time I want to give this a fair crack at working in case it might help. (we are that desperate!)
Sorry for the ramble, needed to get it out!
