As an adult with mild asthma, is taking singulair (montelukast) instead of an inhaled corticosteroid (flovent diskus) a realistic option?

In brief: Yes

Yes, if it works for you.
Generally, singulair (montelukast) works for allergies and asthma, and it is a very well tolerated medication. Give it a try!
