Yes: Singulair is a tablet containing montelukast, a leukotriene modifier, that helps to reduce asthma inflammation. Advair is an inhaler that contains fluticasone (a steroid) and salmeterol (a beta-agonist). Advair decreases inflammation with the inhaled steroid and helps open the airways with the bronchodilator/ beta-agonist. Advair is for more severe asthma than singulair.See 1 more doctor answer
Usually none: The list of possible side effects for singulair (montelukast) is long, but most are the same symptoms kids get all the time from common illnesses, meaning kids got sick while testing the medication: headache, flu-like symptoms, stomach ache, cough, dizziness, fatigue, decreased appetite, rash, fever, itching, hives, ear infections, colds, anxiety, restlessness, tremor, sleep issues. Rarely, serious ones happen.
Depends: If your child was evaluated by your doc and this was prescribed, it is an approved and reasonable prescription medication. If you have some left over from another kid or yourself, it is not appropriate for random use.See 2 more doctor answers
