Singulair (montelukast): No. It doesn't look like you were prescribed singulair (montelukast) which is a Leukotriene Receptor Antagonist designed to prevents asthma attacks and treats allergies. Try OTC antihistamine such as Allegra or Zyrtec. Do not use medication that was not prescribed for you. If your symptoms persist despite using OTC meds, then see your doctor for eval and treatment planning.
