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.
