Hello and hope you are doing well.

Singulair (montelukast) is used to prevent asthma attacks. Formoterol is a long-acting (12 hours) beta2-agonist and helps to prevent episodes of bronchospasm. So, both of them are different, though they work towards preventing attacks of wheezing.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
