Singulair for Kids

Singulair® (montelukast sodium) is one of the most-studied medications for asthma in children. It is for this reason that many healthcare providers prescribe Singulair for kids.
The drug is not only used for preventing asthma attacks, but it is also approved for the treatment of allergic rhinitis (irritated, stuffy, itchy, or runny nose due to allergies).
For asthma treatment, healthcare providers can prescribe Singulair for kids as young as 12 months. When used as a medication for preventing exercise-induced asthma, it can be used in children as young as six years old. Singulair is also approved for treating seasonal allergies in children as young as two years old and for year-round allergies in children as young as six months old.
The medication is available in chewable tablets and oral granules, which are often easier for young children to take.
