I took singulair (montelukast) and it made me have uncontrollable rage. Are there any other leukotriene receptor antagonists that do not cause rage?
Side effects: All the leukotriene blockers carry the warning about behavior or mood changes, so if this occurs with one drug in this family it is likely to occur with others especially if the reaction was severe. I would try something else like inhaled steroids or a combination of inhaled steroids and long acting bronchodilator. ...Read more

Using just beta agonist alone on a regular basis may actually make your asthma worse. ...Read more
