nana jo,

We are not doctors- this is a public forum. Assuming you are right about the Singulair causing his anger/moodiness, if you take him off of it without discussing it with his doctor- what effect might that have on his asthma? I suggest you discuss this with his doctor, who knows his medical history, why he's taking it and what the alternatives are.

My grandson has been on singular for 2 years. He was always happy go lucky before this drug. Now he is extremely angry, can't seem to settle down and always moody. Before singular he was the happiest easy going child you could ever imagine. I would like to have his mother take him off the drug. Would a good saline solution in the nose morning and night help him. He has some allergies but this medicine is doing more harm than good. It breaks my heart he is so moody. thank you for your time
This is the first time I have ever heard of anyone having this type of side effect, I take
the adult singular and I know a few parents that give there children singular dose of the drug and love it and have had no problem with it. I would take your child to Your familly Doctor for some blood work to see it there is something else going on or to see if he is having a allergic reaction to singular.But that is the only way to know for sure...

My son has been taking this for about 2 years now and there has been nothing from what I see. They told me to have him take it before he goes to bed.

There is absolutely NO PROVEN DATA to support the allegations made. Scientific data does not support most of what the cretin states!
Can we ask you to please qualify your statement? The individual in question seems well informed, so if you're going to call him names and say he knows nothing, back it up or you're the one that looks like a "cretin"!

Thanks for your support, MMM, but don't hold your breath waiting for a reply from the good doctor.

My 24 mo old son has been using Pulmicort and albuterol as needed for 7 months. Before this time he was sick constantly, pneumonia 4 times in 3 months, and hospitalized twice. Our new pulminologist prescribed the nebulized Pulimcort 2X daily. Our son's health improved so much that he is now down to treatment just once daily, and we haven't needed to use albuterol in almost 2 months! Our son was diagnosed with Reactive Airway Disease, meaning his lungs could not fight off respiratory infections like common colds or flu. This has been a miracle for us, he is healthier now than he ever has been!

Schering-Plough ITSELF admits on its Proventil HFA homepage (6th paragraph from the bottom): "RAPID HEART BEAT, VOMITING, CHEST PAIN and PALPITATION OCCURS MORE FREQUENTLY WITH PROVENTIL HFA (than with CFC albuterol)."

Hello Grant,
It has been 5 1/2 years since you posted this question, but I ran across it today as I was searching online and was hoping you could shed some light onto why you asked this (providing you can remember). My 4 year old daughter had an anaphylactic reaction to her MMR vaccine in September and, ever since, has had asthma symptoms (hospitalized twice). I have been unable to find any information linking the two, but I am curious why you asked this. Any help would be appreciated!!

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
