I've been taking Singular for about 2 months - haven't had any colds.

The book I've been reading (by the Harvard Medical School asthma docs) says that the leukotriene blockers (of which Singular is one) "are virtually free of undesirable side effects", and works well as a controller for mild asthma. A different option is an inhaled steroid, particularly for people with moderate/severe persistent asthma. They are more frequently effective, but do have the risk of side effects such as oral thrush.

Incidentally, I have severe persistent asthma. I use Singular, Asmanex (at the highest dose possible), Xopenex, and 2 prescription nose sprays. As I said, I don't have any side effects that I've noticed.
