Question about Singulair
My husband has battled asthma now for over 20 years.  2 years ago he was put on Advair disk inhaler, Singulair, and Allegra D as his regimen.  After about a month he started having a problem with his legs and groin itching.  He took himself off the Singulair as that is what he decided was the problem.  He has gotten by with just the Advair inhaler.  In the past month he's really been struggling with breathing problems.  He went to a different pulmonologist that put him back on Singulair, Advair (bigger dosage), Provetil (rescue inhaler), Claritin, and a drug for acid reflux--starts with 'o' but I can't remember the name.  Anyway, after 2 days on this new regimen (hasn't started taking the Claritin though) the itching started.  Has anyone else had this experience with Singulair?  That has to be the culprit as he's taken everything else before.  He also had a very restless night last night with what can only be described as 'jumpy legs' and twitching.  Help!!!

Possibly I have had the groin issue. Have looked up the side effects of singular on web md or someplace like that?

I have looked up the side effects of both Singulair and Advair.  It seems that both can cause skin issues.  I just know that he's been using the Advair all along with no problems but once he started the Singulair the itching returned.  Now I will have to say that the past two days have been better.  Maybe his body needed to adjust?  Dunno.

I've been on Advair since Sept 2007 with ZERO side effects.  I used Zyrtac for my allergies.  The pollen in Atlanta really aggravated my asthma when exercising outside, so my Doctor put my on Singulair.  After two doses I'm itchy all over, including the groin!  I'm going to stop taking the Singulair - these side effects aren't worth it!
