My main interest in trying Singulair is to help with my "exercise-induced asthma," so I am considering trying it three times a week, on the days that I work out. I will discuss this with my MD but I wanted to get responses from this excellent online community, too. Thanks!
Are you able to take Singulair on an "as-needed" basis, rather than once per day?

How was it determined you have exercise induced asthma? After ten minutes of exercise I get a tightening in my throat and find it hard to breath. I tried Alvesco and Xopenex to no avail. I passed all the breathing tests administered by my Pulmonologist and had a scan of my lungs. Everything is good. My cardiologist wants me to try Renexa; I have a jailed vessel. Are there any further tests I can take?
Singulair requires daily usage to effectively work. If you want as needed medication ask your doc about a bronchodilator, better known as a puffer.
