I've been on Singulair (montelukast) for about 2 mos, but the past week I've had to take albuterol in the morning and at night too. Is this concerning?

Yes. The increased need for Albuterol suggests a worseing of your reactive airway disease. It will be important to identify the appropriate triggers and to alter your treatment regimen to both take care of this exacerbation and to prevent other flairs.

Complicated. Antihistamines can all interfere with ovulation by blocking the action of histamine, a chemical that also plays a role in releasing an egg from the ovary and implanting it in the womb.
