Singulair® is a prescription medication used in the treatment of asthma. Singulair® contains montelukast sodium, and is manufactured by Merck Sharp & Dohme Corporation. Singulair® is taken orally in tablets, chewable tablets and granules, and is not a substitute for fast-acting asthma inhalers.[1]

Like many prescription medications, Singulair® can become costly. One way to help ease the cost is to obtain free samples. These free trials of Singulair® may be available through a patient's doctor or healthcare provider. In addition, patients can also make use of Singulair® patient assistance programs. Singulair® also offers a coupon good for $20 on a full prescription.

Singulair Background

Singulair® is the brand name for montelukast, a leukotriene inhibitor that helps prevent asthma attacks in adults and children over the age of 12 months. It also helps relieve allergy symptoms like sneezing or stuffy, runny nasal passages in adults and children as young as six months.[1]

In some cases, serious side effects may occur while a patient is using Singulair®. Some of these more serious side effects include, but are not limited to the worsening of a patient's asthma symptoms, the development of tremors or shaking, the appearance of a skin rash, hallucination, sleepwalking, nightmares, or mood and behavior changes like anxiety and depression.[4]
