What is Montelukast sodium?


Singulair is a medicine called a leukotriene receptor antagonist. It works by blocking substances in the body called leukotrienes. Blocking leukotrienes improves asthma and allergic rhinitis.

Singulair is prescribed for the treatment of asthma, the prevention of exercise-induced asthma, and allergic rhinitis (sneezing, stuffy nose, runny nose, itching of the nose, and outdoor and indoor allergies).

What is the most important information I should know about Montelukast sodium?


Singulair alleviates the on-going symptoms of asthma, but it won't stop an acute asthma attack.

If you have difficulty breathing while taking Singulair, or find that you need your orally inhaled bronchodilator more often than usual (or require more puffs than prescribed), notify your doctor.

If your asthma gets worse after exercise, continue using a short-acting inhaled airway opener to prevent the problem and relieve attacks.

Who should not take Montelukast sodium?


Do not take Singulair if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.

What should I tell my doctor before I take the first dose of Montelukast sodium?


Tell your doctor about all prescription, over-the-counter, and herbal medications you are taking before beginning treatment with Singulair. Also, talk to your doctor about your complete medical history, especially if you have phenylketonuria (an inability to process phenylalanine).

What is the usual dosage?


The information below is based on the dosage guidelines your doctor uses. Depending on your condition and medical history, your doctor may prescribe a different regimen. Do not change the dosage or stop taking your medication without your doctor's approval.

Children 6 to 14 years: The usual dose is one 5 mg chewable tablet once a day in the evening.

Exercise-Induced Bronchoconstriction

Adults and children =15 years: The usual dose is one 10 mg tablet taken at least 2 hours before exercise. However, if you are already taking one tablet daily for your asthma or allergies, you do not need to take a second one before exercising. An additional dose should not be taken within 24 hours of a previous dose.

How should I take Montelukast sodium?


Take a Singulair tablet once daily, whether or not you have any symptoms. The tablet can be taken with or without food. If you have asthma, or asthma and allergies, take Singulair in the evening. If you have only allergies, you can take Singulair at any time.

For administration to children, place the oral granules directly in the child's mouth. The granules may also be mixed with a spoonful of one of the following soft foods: applesauce, carrots, rice, or ice cream. The food should be cold or at room temperature.

The granules can also be dissolved in 1 teaspoonful (5 milliliters) of cold or room temperature baby formula or breast milk. You should not use any other liquid to dissolve the granules. However, the child can drink liquids after the granules have been swallowed. Do not open the granules packet until your child is ready to take them. Once the packet is opened, give the full dose of medication within 15 minutes. Throw away any unused portion of the granules; do not store them for future use.

What should I avoid while taking Montelukast sodium?


If you have asthma and if your asthma is made worse by aspirin, continue to avoid aspirin or other medicines called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs while taking Singulair.

What are possible food and drug interactions associated with Montelukast sodium?


If Singulair is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Singulair with phenobarbital or rifampin.
