Just curious if anyone knows if Singulair is to be taken daily (EVERYday) or only certain times of year when allergies are worse?

My son takes one pill in the evening and the doctor told him to use it year round. I think it depends on what it's used for, whether its for asthma maintance or seasonal allergies. When I was on it, I took it for allergy season only. If you are unsure of your dosing, it's always best to check with your doctor.

My son uses it seasonally as needed. He used Zyrtec and was switched to Singualar and it works wonderfully. His allergies have him waking up in the morning with puffy swollen eyes and a cough without congestion. The Singualar knocks it out pretty quick.
