Hello rziering1. I responded to your question several hours after you posted it, but it obviously did not get posted. From what I have read about the anxiety that comes with the use of singulair,there IS no clear answer to your question. It seems to be different for each individual.Seems this is a drug that the FDA jumped the gun on, once again. In children, the anxiety can, in some, last for several years,which of course begins a chain of erratic and difficult behavioral changes.In adults, that conclusion is even less clear. I think your playing a waiting game though.I hope your anxiety starts to fade soon,but if not, perhaps you may want to consider a medication to help temper the anxiety.There are a plethora of possible medications that can help you get through this though. Hoping you see change soon,tejas129

Is there anything further on this? I, too, cannot tolerate it. I took it for just 5 days and had severe panic attacks, nightmares etc when my anxiety is generally very well controlled without medication. It's been almost 2 weeks since I've stopped taking it, but the abnormal anxiety, mood swings, depressive thoughts, nightmares etc have not gone away. They've diminished, yes, but I'm still far from normal. It'd be so easier to deal with if there was some sort of window where I could expect to feel better by!

Any updates from the two commenters? I took 9 days of Singulair with side effects including headaches, migraine, anxiety, and vibrations/tingling in my feet, legs and hands. Stopped taking the medication one day ago.

I am in the same boat. Took it for 27 days not realizing it was the reason I was feeling depressed and anxious. How long did it take everyone to get back to normal?

Hello rziering. I would say within several days after stoppage. I am not a doctor so you might ask a doctor or pharmacist to confirm, or get thier opinion. Regards pledge
