Headaches has been reported in around 18% people taking Singulair (montelukast sodium), did not read it to cause high blood pressure or buzzing sensation in the head, the buzzing could be due to the headaches, however you must seek medical attention, as your doc/pharmacist should be able to provide help as he/she would know your medical history, hope this helps & get well soon!

I have been an extremely calm and stress-free person all my life, with BP typically around 110/70 and I never get stressed even when the sky really is falling. But now I've been on Singulair for 3 months and in the past couple of weeks I've begun having unexplained anxiety. I feel like there is impending doom despite the fact that my business is better than ever and last month was our best month yet in over 8 years. When I saw today that my BP is now 150/100 I began doing some research and discovered that unexplained anxiety and hypertension are quite common complaints of Singulair users.

I just started this medication last night... got up this morning and my cheeks were blood red and I have a headache. I took my blood pressure and it is 142/92. I am only 30 and have only had this problem once before when I was started on Concerta while tapering off Wellbutrin.
