Singular for Asthma
Were you looking for information on Singulair? Singular for asthma is a common misspelling of Singulair.
Singular® is a prescription drug used to prevent asthma (including exercise-induced asthma) and nasal allergies (which can result in an itchy, stuffy, or runny nose). The medication works by blocking leukotriene receptors, which helps minimize or prevent symptoms. It is available as tablets, granules, and chewable tablets. Singulair can be used in children as young as six months. The chewable and granule forms may be easier for young children to take.
When taking Singulair for asthma, you may take it on a daily basis or just before exercising. Keep in mind that this is not a quick-acting medication. It is used to prevent asthma attacks, not to treat an attack once it starts.
