Singulair caused vocal ticks
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.

New to Dulera
1502views
I too appreciate these post. I have copd and have been on oxygen for 3yrs. I have been using Advair 2x's a day and Spiriva1 X's a day for yrs. My insurance won't pay for my Advair any more and suggested I use Dulera. I am afraid to use a new treatment so reading these have helped. Again, thanks for your imput.

I was prescribed Singulair by my ENT, because I wanted to try something I thought would be a "lighter" form of treatment other than Dulera; after 3 days my skin was feeling as though it was hot, then cold, and being scraped by pins! Also, the dreams I had were vivid and very strange, and I was extremely agitated. So, I am now in the process of making myself try the Dulera, hoping it will work and I won't be allergic!

I was given Dulera over 3 weeks ago, and I am afraid to use it. I have a mild asthma, whistling and a little wheezing at night. One doctor told me he controlled his without meds, and I am so fearful, wishing I wasnt' this way... I am glad to see the positive comments about the drug.
Lynn Eaton  |  December 27, 2013
Thank you for posting. I am beginning Dulera this evening for the first time. I have been on Qvar and its not been helping much. So have been on breathing treatments and now beginning Dulera and stopping Qvar. Will post when I have used for a week. Thanks.
