My doctor in India prescribs it for 2 weeks (10mg/1 per day) & told me not to continue for more than 1-2 months? I see in this or various other user groups where people have been taking Singulair (montelukast) for many years continuously. I would like to continue Singulair (montelukast) more than a month or two as it helps my allergy/asthma.

It depends on what triggers your allergy/asthma symptoms.
If your symptoms are seasonal then you will only need to take singulair during that specific time of year - but if your symptoms are perennial (all year round) then you will benefit from taking it every day.

I took Singulair for ten months (for allergy problems) and now I believe it has damaged my brain. The drug's side effect problems seem to occur if you take it for more than a few months. I stopped taking it 5 weeks ago and my neuropsychiatric side effect problems are still with me. I fear I may have permanent brain damage from it. Trust your in doctor from India. Use nasal rinse instead of allergy meds as it is the safest treatment im my opinion for allergies. I wish someone had warned me or told me to not take it long term.
