Possible Link between Singulair and Suicidal Behavior
Singulair is a medicine in the drug class known as leukotriene receptor antagonists. Singulair is used to treat asthma and allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, stuffy nose, runny nose, and itching of the nose. It is also used to prevent exercise induced asthma.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is working with Singulair’s maker, Merck & Co., Inc., to further evaluate the possible link between the use of Singulair and behavior/mood changes, suicidality and suicide. The FDA expects that it may take up to 9 months to complete the ongoing evaluations. In addition, the agency is reviewing post-marketing reports of similar behavior in patients taking other leukotriene-modifying medications, including zafirlukast (Accolate) and zileuton (Zyflo and Zyflo CR).
