My primary just put me on singulair for allergies/mild asthma. If I have asthma, and I think I do, it is the cough-variant asthma. He said if singulair doesn't work, I should go to an allergist and find out exactly what I'm allergic to. He would certainly prescribe me an inhalant medication, but if he did I would never learn exactly what I was allergic to. In the meantime, I started taking sinulair a couple of days ago. Right away, my nasal allergies got a lot better. Still have the cough, though, and I'm sure it's allergies because it only happens outside in the air. How long before sinulair helps the cough, if it helps at all?
Thanks for any information!
