Does anyone's children take singulair for the control of eczema?? My son just got a prescription. he doesn't have asthma but the allergist said that the medication also helps inflamation of the skin. any experience with the meds anyone? particularly in young toddlers (18 months or so)?

My son has been on singulair for asthma and outdoor allergies and it has been great, no side effects what so ever. I have another friend whose son is on it also and also only has great things to say about it. Good Luck!

I was in a drug trial for Singular (really large one) and my breathing and skin degenerated so much that I had to be taken off the trial and put back on Claritin.

It was a most interesting experience.

My son was prescribed Singulair for his asthma related to his allergy to peanuts and cats and dogs. I had him on it for about a month, but he got one of the very weird, creepy, highly rare side effects to it so I took him off it (and he's been fine... eliminating the peanuts did the trick)

Anyway, he was over tired constantly, to the point of being downright narcaleptic. He'd sleep all night, then sleep as much as he could in the afternoon, and even fall asleep on his way upstairs to go to bed, at the kitchen table during dinner, or sitting in the corner playing a game. It was horrible.

But, everything effects everyone differently. We should be glad for that. Even if we're not glad for the PA...

Good luck.

My son is 5 1/2 yrs and has been on singulair for 3 months. This has really improved his eczema and has controlled his asthma. I'm happy with the results so far. I'm happy to avoid steriods.
