About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of SINGULAIR patients who developed ADRENALITIS.

FactMed provides MD-approved analysis to help both patients, researchers, and physicians accurately assess the risk profile for more than 20,000 different pharmaceutical products. The below report offers compiled information from Food & Drug Administration and FactMed user submissions. Between January 2004 and October 2012, 2 individuals taking SINGULAIR reported ADRENALITIS to the FDA. A total of 34282 SINGULAIR drug adverse event reaction reports were made with the FDA during this time period. Often the FDA only receives reports of the most critical and severe cases; these numbers may therefore underrepresent the complication rate of the medication.

FDA Research Report

Introduction This page is designed to help you determine the relationship, if any, between SINGULAIR and ADRENALITIS. In doing so, we compare SINGULAIR with other drugs that cause ADRENALITIS, to help you evaluate whether or not SINGULAIR causes ADRENALITIS. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of SINGULAIR, so you can see if ADRENALITIS ranks among SINGULAIR's most well-known side effects.

VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA
I have been on Singulair for the last 3 months. I am a cyclist and cycle daily. A couple of months ago I started getting Ventricular tachycardia when out cycling. My heart rate would go up from 170 to over 230bpm. I was really worried and has since gone for an angiogram and heart sonar. There is absolutely nothing wrong with my heart or my veins. My only conclusion is that is must be the singular. Do you think I might be right? 2015-07-23 08:55:30

SEROTONIN SYNDROME
I am a 42 year old male. I was prescribed Singulair 3 weeks ago for allergies. I normally have a very high libido however I have found that over the past two weeks and especially the last week my sex drive has dropped to zero. I am simply not interested. I also noticed from the beginning tha I had a hard time waking up. The problem has gotten worse every week. I normally go to bed at 8pm and that is when I take the med. I have found that I cant keep my eyes open until 10-11 am the next morning. I stopped this med as of today. 2015-09-28 10:07:49

QUESTION
TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS
I had a metabolic panel/labs done and 6 weeks later I had the same labs done again as a follow up. It that period of time, I had terrible allergies that caused an upper respiratory infection. I started taking singulair my primary dr had prescribed. 1st set of labs were fine. Started singulair. 2nd set of labs showed I was severe diabetic, not border line! My blood sugar the day of testing (2nd time) was like 300+ with an A1C (?) Of 10.4. Doctor started me on Invokamet twice daily. I've had great numbers since (only about a month), plus I quit taking singulair. I started backing off invokamet to see what would happen and blood sugar numbers still look great. Definitely concerned it was the singulair that triggered it. 2015-10-30 03:33:14

APHASIA
I have been taking Singulair for about 6+ months now and have had great success controlling allergy problems. My fear is that I am experiencing more trouble with what appears to be aphasia. I think I am saying one word and another comes out. My family is noticing these things. I was hoping it would go away but it is getting worse. The aphasia started within the first month along with headaches. I think I am going to have to stop taking the medicine. 2017-05-30 21:16:49

QUESTION
ESSENTIAL TREMOR
My 73 year old mother started to shake in her right leg uncontrollably 1 week ago. The shakes would be mostly at night when she is sleeping and can be aggressive enough to wake her. They also affect her right arm. After being admitted and ran every single test possible, blood work, cat scan, MRI, we were told to stop taking Singulair and she was given anxiety medication and neurontin. Dr. said that it was not neurological, it was not an essential tremor. I believe after reading online cases from other people that Singulair could be the reason why she had this all of the sudden. She started taking SIngulair may 2 or more years ago, after her allergy doctor cleared her sinus, and he was diagnosed with allergies and she has asthma all her life. So after I look at the side effects of Singulair on line I totally believe that exposure of this drug is the reason that she developed these shakes. She has no other health conditions, No blood pressure, no cholesterol, no glucose, nothing and the only medicine she took was singulair on a regular basis. 2017-07-30 18:24:56
