My daughter doesn't have asthma like I do, but she has pretty bad allergies. Her allergist (the same one I see) added Singulair to her Zyrtec D and that seems to work well for her. I used to take Singulair also. It doesn't seem to have any ill side effects and it is used a lot for allergies also, not just asthma.
I really worry that this daughter will end up with asthma because she seems to be following in my footsteps with allergies and respiratory problems. She takes good care of herself and she doesn't smoke either, so there's not much else to do, well there is. It's in God's hands.

Use Benadryl cautiously if you have a history of asthma or other chronic lung disease, an over-active thyroid, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
Before taking Benadryl, tell your doctor if you have asthma.
"For many years there has been a concern among some clinicians that treatment with antihistamines such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl) will cause worsening of asthma because of the anticholinergic effects of these agents causing excessive drying of the thick bronchial secretions in this disorder." ~American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI)~
