Singulair side effects

I was prescribed Singulair to relieve severe June grass allergies.  Although the medication worked to calm my hay faver, I suffered servious side effects as a result.

After taking the medication for 3 weeks, I started experiencing a "pins and needles" sensation in my left arm and hand.  After stopping the medication for over a week, I am still experiencing numbness and itching on my left hand.  In addition, while taking the medication, I experienced severe mood swings and irritability which ceased within 2 days after stopping the drug.  

Unless you suffer from life-threatening asthma, I would not recommend taking this drug to treat seasonal allergies.  The side effects are not worth it.
