Default Singulair and Tics

My daughter is 7 and was on singulair for 2 years. She developed many facial tics. We stopped the singulair 6 months ago. She had horrible withdrawal with the tics really worsening. After about 8 weeks they finally lessened back to the way they werer before stopping the singulair. They are better but still present even 6 months later after discontinuing the drug. Have your tics gotten better? Does anyone know how long this might go on? Is this a permanent side effect? Just curious about how this went for you. Hopefully, they subsided???

His teacher had called me to say he just hasn't been himself since he's been on the Singulair. Wondering how long it takes to get out of their little long until these may subside?
Danielle, my 12 year old took Singulair for about a month when I noticed he started having vocal tics. He's never had tics before. I googled "Singulair tics" and found all kinds of posts from parents talking about their kids having side effects from taking Singulair, including having tics and even vocal tics! I knew about possible depression and anxiety so we were keeping a close watch on him for those things. He wanted to try it for his allergies. I'd never read anything about Singulair and tics. My son's been off Singulair for 2 weeks but the tics continue. I'm so worried....I've been researching natural supplements to give him. Please tell me your son eventually quit having vocal tics!

Is your daughter better now? My nephew is off Singulair for 5 days, and his mood is back to normal but he is still blinking at the end of the day.
