Singular is commonly prescribed to treat asthma (including exercise-induced asthma) and an itchy, stuffy, runny nose that is the result of allergies. It works by blocking leukotriene receptors, which helps minimize or prevent symptoms. Singulair is available in various forms, including tablets, granules, and chewable tablets. How often it is taken depends on the condition it is being used to treat. Possible side effects include headaches, stomach pain, and the flu.
