My mother DIED from ACCOLATE! Please know that she died from liver failure from taking this drug! First her liver failed then all her organs shut down and she went on life support and died. It was very sudden and she just thought she had the flu. They said it was from this drug. Please be careful if you are on this bc the hospital told us other women were on it and were there for liver transplants and its banned in canada. My mom was healthy and i HATE this drug! I hope this helps someone,,ps she was only in her 50;s this should be banned!I hope if your on it you are getting your livers tested every couple months bc she was only on it 9 months!

I was just advised to stop taking this after 15 years. Its the same as Singular and causes depression/suicide. I did not have a tendency for either. However, upon stopping this medicine my headaches, muscle aches and fatigue are starting to go away.

My daughter had bad headaches. We discovered it was from Accolate. We could not find the cause of the headaches until she forgot this med on vacation. The headaches went away after several days off this drug!!!!

miracle drug for me. if I could only take one med this would be it. Headache and ear ache seem to be side effects, but I'll live with it as long as I can breathe. Since taking it I no longer have to take inhalers to bed with me at night, fewer infections and rounds of oral steroids. I am able to exercise, although hills and walking up stairs are still a effort.

Been on this (and other pills) for asthma/respiratory problems for over 10 years. Tried Singulair long ago, but Accolate can be used twice a day which seems to work better. I have no alternative since my symptoms are constant and can become severe. I am allergic/sensitive in a negative way to all asthma inhalers and severely reactive to Seravent. Between a rock and a hard place. Accolate, Allegra, Ativan work together to allow me to continue to exist. It is not easy, but I'm always looking for new meds to improve the situation and I take many naturopathic pills also. They really do make the prescriptions more effective.
