Asthma is one of the main health issues these days faced by today′s people. A great number of people are suffering with asthma. Singulair is the medicine used to prevent shortness of breath due to asthma and prevent wheezing. It reduces asthma attacks and keeps the person normal in all conditions. It has been seen that asthma become severe when the person is emotionally high.

In addition, people who do regular exercise must also take this medicine to prevent shortness of breath during workout. Singulair medication also relieves the symptoms of allergic rhinitis and hay fever. Well, if you are using this medicine right after getting any asthma attack or breathing problem, you will not get relief. It takes time for proper working. Doctors suggest its use to their patients when they are going to start a heavy work which requires excess of oxygen and proper breathing.
