Singulair is used for prevention and long-term treatment of asthma. It is also used in certain patients to relieve runny nose caused by allergies and to prevent asthma attacks caused by exercise. Singulair is a leukotriene receptor antagonist. It works by blocking a substance called leukotriene, which helps to decrease certain asthma and allergy symptoms.
Use Singulair as directed by your doctor.
- Take Singulair by mouth with or without food.
- Continue to use Singulair even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses.
- If you miss a dose of Singulair, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
