- 1 year old fainting after taking singulair
My 1 year old girl has asthma like breathing issues when she gets colds.she had been taking singulair and has fainted about 5 times after she mildly hurts herself.(bumps head usually) then screams out forcefully without breathing in then looses consciousness for a few seconds.all incidents after taking singulair.over the course of a few months she is not taking anymore for about 2 weeks but has not passed out recently even after screaming pretty hard .it's hard to say if she has really hurt herself in a similar matter or worse but they are pretty minor incidents that she gets worked up about .
- Chest pain with gabpentin
Went from using 100 mg of Gabpentin to 300 mg of Gabpentin within 3 days chest pain began..I was using this medication for shingles. Called doctor and he immediately took me off.
- Singulair to the rescue
Antihistamines , even in small amounts, cause my prostate to swell immensely. Several months ago my allergies reached the point I had to take something. I had a physician's sample of 10 mg Singulair, so I took one. To my amazement, I got quick relief from extreme allergies, but my prostate SHRUNK as much as it did on finesteride. Since then I take my usual 2 mg hytrin each morning and my 10 mg Singulair at night and the combo has all but done away with my prostatic hyperplasia. NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD PASS MIT ON.
- Chest pain while on yasmin
started experiencing severe chest pain and Vision disturbances since day one of taking yasmin. today is day 4 and I don't wanna take them anymore. I've ever taken yasmin about a year ago with no side effects so I'm a lil lost as to why its been a bother now. last menses was June 12th, had it prescribed by my OG for withdrawal bleed
- Eczema and birth control-microgestin
I started getting eczema over the last year and recently decided it may be from the birth control as well, which I started taking @ 2 months before I got the eczema and skin started breaking out...weight gain, etc. I am on singulair, westcort cream, moisture/kenalog, exederm cream, cerevue wash, cetaphil moisturizer, and started using the black soap which is apparently helping. I started a vegetarian diet and eat mainly the same foods daily to monitor anything for allergies. I stopped taking the pill 3 days ago and I am optimistic. I am hoping others have had positive experiences.

Merck denys that this is a side effect of the medication, CVS does not list it as a side effect on theri insert, however Caremark lists it as a seious one on their consumer insert. Doctor sent me for a Catherization before I figured out the chest pain might be coming from the Singulair.
