From this study (3 months ago):
4 year old son personality changed with in a week of starting singular 4 mg chew tablets for his asthma. He went from being a very calm child to very scared and easily upset. He would break down very easily and it would take 30 min to almost 1 hour to calm him down over the simplest things. He would whine and throw tantrums that he would never do even when he was 1-2 years old. He became aggressive with the children at school and started hitting. He would have night terrors and would refuse to go to sleep often not falling asleep until 1am when his normal bedtime is 8pm. no changes in schedule have occurred other than changing his medication from zyrtec to singulair. He would tell us that he was sad and scared and he would cry. We stopped giving him the singulair and within a week he was back to his normal happy calm personality. His sleep pattern returned to normal and he stopped hitting at school. He said he doesn't feel sad anymore and he isn't scared. He was on singulair for 2 months.
