Dr Fisher has given a good description on its action.
In addition to asthma, Singulair (montelukast) may also be effective for allergic rhinitis. In my experience, it is effective in about 50% of the people. Singulair (montelukast) is not as effective as inhaled steroid but may be uniquely effective about 25% of the time.
Would you like to video or text chat with me?
