Reduction in Concomitant Therapy:
Bronchodilator Treatments: SINGULAIR can be added to the treatment regimen of patients who are not adequately controlled on bronchodilator alone. When a clinical response is evident (usually after the first dose), the patient’s bronchodilator therapy can be reduced as tolerated. Inhaled Corticosteroids: Treatment with SINGULAIR provides additional clinical benefit to patients treated witn inhaled corticosteroids. A reduction in the corticosteroid dose can be made as tolerated. The dose should be reduced graduaHy with medical supervision. In some patients, the dose of inhaled corticosteroids can be tapered off completely. SINGULAIR should not be abruptly substituted for inhaled corticosteroids.
Hypersensitivity to any component of this product
The efficacy of oral SINGULAIR for the treatment of acute asthma attacks has not been established. Therefore, oral SINGULAIR should not be used to treat acute asthma attacks. Patients should be advised to have appropriate rescue medication available.
While the dose of concomitant inhaled corticos eroiamay be reduced gradually under medical supervision, SINGULAIR should not be abruptly substituted for inhaled ororal corticosteroids. The reduction in systemic corticosteroid dose in patients receiving anti-asthma agents including leukotriene recaptor antagonists has been followed in rare cases by the occurrence of one or more of the following:
eosinophilia, vasculitic rash, worsening pulmonary symptoms, cardiac complications, and/or neuropathy sometimes diagnosed as Churg-Strauss syndrome, a systemic eosinophilic vasculitis. Although a causal relationship with leukotriene receptor antagonism has not been established, caution and appropriate clinical monitoring are recommended when systemic corticosteroid reduction is considered in patients receiving SINGULAIR.
singulair has not been studied in pregnant women SINGULAIR should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. During worldwide marketing experience, congenital limb defects have been rarely reported in the offspring of women being treated with SINGULAIR during pregnancy. Most of these women were also taking other asthma medications during their pregnancy. A causal relationship between these events and SINGULAIR has not been
