Singular and kids

I just today took my 8yr old son to his doctors for a physical along with to talk about a plan for getting a grip on his asthma. We left with 5 different prescriptions, which honestly wasn't sitting well with me. He is 8!!! Singular 5mg is one of them. Something inside me just told myself to stop everything I was doing and to take a look at these scripts and research them. I typed in Singulair first, by god it led me here. I was supposed to fill all of them and have him start them tonight, I only picked up his inhalers, so thankful and counting my blessings that I only got those. The reviews that I read were so very helpful, they just could of possibly saved my son and who he is. I am so very sorry to hear about all of these children going thru this. It's heartbreaking, but I want to thank you bc my son could of became one more of these reviews. So really I just wanted to say thank you, this was so helpful and edicational for me. The prescription that was written for Singulair has already been denied by me and phone calls were also made to my sons doctor about this. Not at any point did the doctor even mention a single thing about any of these side effects! Outrage! You became a doctor to help the sick, but then you want to give my son something to make him sick, make him become someone different, possibly become suicidal? Outrage! Thank you again this was huge!

And did you not ask the doctor questions about the medications he was giving for this child? It is our responsibility to ask questions when the doc gives us medications and I do not care if it is for a child or an adult. All meds have some sort of side effects and unless you ask the doc about it and if he or she is sure its right for your child is up to you not for him or her to guess at. You COMMUNICATE with the doc on this. It is not only up to the doctor but the parents to make sure the child gets what they need.
