Singular is a common misspelling of Singulair (montelukast).

What is Singulair (Singular)?

Singulair (Singular) is used for the prevention and long-term treatment of asthma attacks in adults and children as young as 12. It is also used in certain patients to relieve runny nose caused by allergy and to prevent asthma attacks caused by exercise. Singulair (Singular) may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Singulair (Singular) is a leukotriene receptor antagonist. Leukotrienes are chemicals your body releases when you breathe in an allergen (such as pollen). Leukotrienes cause swelling in your lungs and tightening of the muscles around your airways, which can result in asthma symptoms. Singulair (Singular) works by blocking leukotrienes, which helps to decrease asthma and allergy symptoms by reducing swelling and inflammation that tend to close up the airways, and by relaxing the walls of the bronchial tubes, expanding the airways and permitting more air to pass through.

Singulair (Singular) may cause drowsiness or dizziness. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Singulair (Singular) with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it.
