Check for overdose symptoms such as: Abdominal pain (stomach pain); Drowsiness; Thirst; Headaches; Vomiting; Hyperactivity. If your 6 year old is ok, then nothing to worry about.
The general recommendation for a missed dose is; if you do not take your Singulair as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
I would consult the doc who prescribed the med for missing the next dose, do not doubt the nurse one bit, but its still better to seek professional medical advice.
Take care, bets wishes!
