About Montelukast (Generic Singulair)

How does it work?

Montelukast calms down special sensors in the body that can get too excited during an allergic reaction or an asthma attack. It's like telling those sensors to relax so you can breathe and feel better.

What does it treat?

It treats breathing issues like wheezing and shortness of breath, so is a common asthma treatment. It also helps reduce the sneezing and stuffy or runny nose of hay fever and allergic rhinitis. So it can help with allergy symptoms too!

What forms does it come in?

This medication comes as a tablet, chewable tablet and oral granules that you take by mouth. It also comes in a nasal spray.

Montelukast vs. Singulair

Montelukast is the active ingredient in Singulair that calms down your body's reaction. Both medications help treat asthma and allergies. But Montelukast is the generic form—so it is often less expensive than the brand-name Singulair.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If an allergy prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Montelukast 10 mg (30 tablets) start at $11.00.
