[QUOTE=Tmaster]Hello, I've been dealing with air allergies for the last year, I've tried Claritin, Cortizone shot, and Rhincort spray. None of these helped. I do take robitussin with Pseudoephedrine in it, that helps a little. Also Xlear natural spray. I have been getting NAET treatments for the last 9 months, with some improvement, But the air is so bad here now that I might try some singulair that one of my doctors has prescribed for me. I am worried about the side effects though. I didn't really have any with the claritin but this is a different Drug.

IF any of you have taken singulair please let me know how it went for you, or if it helped. Also any other ideas for these symptoms would be great! Thanks

My Allergy symptoms:
Sore lymph nodes under chin on neck
Swollen left lymph node
Slightly closed esophegus sometimes
some post nasal drip[/QUOTE]
Hi Tmaster, I've been taking singulair for 3 or 4 years now. When I had septoplasty, turbinate reduction, adenoidectomy, and tonsilectomy surgery on 2/10/06, I had to stop taking all my medications because, of course I couldn't swallow pills. I was off of my regular medications for 3 weeks. In that time I could tell that I missed my singulair more than any other medication. I had post nasal drip and congestion. That happened once last year too. I forgot to refill my script and ran out. The next week was not very fun. My other allergy meds weren't working as well as they had with the singulair. I finally called my doc and asked for some samples to get me through until I received my script from the mail in pharmacy. I have never had any side effects. In fact I'll have to go to and look them up. Singular really woks for me. :) Here is what webmd ([url][/url]) says the side effects are: Unusual weakness, stomach upset, diarrhea, dizziness, cough, headache, nausea, vomiting, trouble sleeping, or mouth pain may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
