I am seeing my allergy / ENT specialist on Monday.
Here is my plan so far, any feedback and advice from you would be most welcome:
I am planning to ask for two separate asthma sprays instead of Seretide so I can take a short acting beta agonist without the corticosteroid when needed. Maybe Ventolin & Becotide or Fluticasone.
I'll ask him for a strong antihistamine for nighttime
Then I was wondering about asking for Singulair ie Montelukast. As someone with asthma and rhinitis, with loads of allergies I wonder if it'd help me. My Mum who has the same medical conditions as me (spookily similar!) is on it but she couldn't say much because she's on other stuff too.
I've read mixed reports about it, some say it helps a lot but quite a few say it made them terribly anxious, edgy and irritable. The mood changing side effects sounded worrying, I don't fancy any of that.
Have any of you tried Singulair? How do / did you find it?
