I have often seen this used as an adjunct to other controllers (inhaled steroids). In those who cannot tolerate or use inhaled steroids, this may be analternate controller

In brief: Yes

Singulair (montelukast) is often added to an exixting regimen of controller and rescue inhalers.
On occasion, this may be used as monotherapy but it appears more effective when used with other drugs.
