Default Don't Give Singulair to Your Children!

I went with my 4 years old daughter to a pediatric allergist due to her pediatric found problems in a blood test. The allergist prescribed Singulair 4mg, Allegra and Nasonex spray. About 4 weeks later started an Allergy in her body and their pediatric said it was an Urticaria (hives) due to the food, after several test she was hospitalized for a week a received a lot of steroids and a the diagnostic of allergy to the wheat flour, eggs and cow milk with a very restrictive diet. The recipe to our home was continuing Singulair, Allegra and Zyrtec. The urticaria come back again, her lips get very red, mild fever, sweating, heat in the body, pain in the legs and the urticaria changed to a big problem, the leukocytes count down for about two weeks (leucopenia). To resume this "medical enigma", and after several weeks almost desperate thinking in everything as possible cause, my wife and i stopped the Singulair and Zyrtec (the urticaria started before of Zyrtech) and in this moment we have two weeks without urticaria and all symptoms are disappearing.

Cesar,

I am just searching about Singulair, and I would like to know how is your daughter now. I hope everything is fine. My nephew started changing his personality and started blinking a lot. He was taking Singulair for almost 3 months and his changes started together. My mother realized the possibility of the medication because she said he was not being himself. He is 5 days off Singulair and he is being himself again but still blinking. What could you tell me about it?

Thanks for the attention.

Claudia.
