Singulair, depression, and behavior


A while back, the FDA decided to look into the issue of mood disturbance and drugs like Singulair.  Through an extensive review of over 20000 patients, the data show no increase in depression or suicide in patients treated with Singulair.  They are still reviewing the data to see if there is a link between Singulair and behavioral issues in kids.  My sense is that this will be ok as well, but we’ll await the findings of their review.  For now, If you’re on Singulair for control of asthma or allergies, you should feel safe to continue these medications
