My son is 3.5. I recently explored the possibility that his horrible behavior might be caused by side effect of taking Singulair. 5 days off the drug we have seen marked improvement in his emotional heath and behavior. His brain seems to be functioning again! HOWEVER, his asthma is back. Last night he did not sleep at all, wheezing and coughing. He uses albuterol but this doesn't really take away the symptoms entirely and sometimes doesn't work at all. Singulair was very effective at controlling his asthma and we never dealt with wheezing unless he had a chest cold. We rarely had to use his inhaler at all.
Has anyone tried any of the other preventative medications out there for asthma? Many of these are not suitable for a 3 year old. I am terrified I am going to have to put him back on Singulair. My DH would never agree to take him to a homepathic doc so I really would like opinions on mainstream treatments.
