Singulair caused vocal ticks
I had been on singular for 10+ years and quit it cold turkey. I was having anxiety and negative feelings with it. I lost 11lbs in two weeks after stopping. I feel great other than anxiety from catching two mice in our house.

My son got his tics back and I noticed it for five days slowly increasing. I knew immediately it was the singulair he started 5 days earlier. Thanks for posting. This put my mind at ease and I too will never give it to him again.

Singular and its Generic Replacement
I have had the same problem. my nose stops up every night to the point that i can't breath but found that if I stop taking the generic the sinus problem goes away . I don't have this problem on the name brand Singular.
