Default No Subject

Hi<br>I've just started on singulair and I've fond that I also have had terrible mood swings. They're not disimilar to PMT.<br><br>I've also had awful pain in my ankles and knees and I've felt too sick to eat most days.<br><br>None of these are listed side effects but the symptoms have clearly displayed themselves since I've started on the course. Am I alone with this or has anybody else had these symptoms?<br><br>I'd like to talk to anyone who has about any possible alternatives or aids. The pain in my joints is getting to the point where I can no longer walk but I don't want to go back on steroids.<br><br>Thanks

Default singulair and leg, knee pain

If the article about suicide had not appeared in my newspaper, I may never have looked up Singulair and the posting from people. Exactly 3 weeks after taking 10mg Singulair for allergies, I found myself with ankle. leg and especially knee pain. What bothered me most is the weakness that I felt upon getting up after sitting for a while. Totally baffeled because I had always being so active. Doctor sending me to therapy to work on the knees, but I am now convinced it has to be the Singulair. I will stop it and see if my pain subsides. I do know that on a three day weekend trip when I forgot to take my Singulair with me, the pain on my knees and legs was considerably less on the second day of not taking the meds. Now I see why,,,at least I am hoping this is the problem and I can get back to feeling like myself again, forget the drippy nose, I shall invest in good, soft tissue for the drip!
