PLease ignore my efficacy ratings - I am merely on day 2, but I am feeling pretty lousy: nausea, sweats, intermittently clammy and just generally feeling crappy. I want to know if others have had a similar experience and if they have, typically how long does these side effects last? My asthma has decompensated to the point that I am oral & inhaled steroid dependent = miserable. I am pinning substantial hope on this abyssmally expensive med - >$300/mon AFTER my insurance pays almost $400!!! (at least that is what my pharmacist told me)

I have been able to breathe a lot easier since I started taking this medication.

Now that Zyflo CR is out, it should be much easier to use, but I initially had some trouble taking the medication on a regular basis and had side-effects as a result.

since I am on Soc. Sec. Disabilaty and receive barely $1100/mo., I was astonished when even with med. insurance, my pharmacy raised it $22. Why can't you have a generic? Linda

My allergist switched me from Singulair to this drug and it works so much better. I can breathe and no more sinus headaches.

I switched from Singulair to Zyflo about a year ago, and I believe the medication is more effective than Singulair. The main problem is that it is hard to take -- I have to take one horse-sized pill every six hours. I often forget to take it, or simply sleep through a dose. The medication is also expensive.

This medication is horribly expensive! $200 for 30 days!

My pulmonologist switched me from Singular to this medication and it works much better for me. It is slightly cumbersome to remember to take four times a day.

I take Zyflo for chronic sinusitis caused by adult onset allergies --my allergist calls it triad asthma (asthma, nasal polyps, and allergy to NSAIDs). I had three surgeries on my sinuses in 5 years before I found this doctor. He told me he treats this kind of sinusitis as "upper respiratory asthma," and recommended Zyflo. Zyflo isn't "approved" for this treatment, but since chronic sinusitis-ers usually have asthma too. . . It works great. I went from not being able to pass any air through my sinuses to 80-90% clear. No surgeries or polyp growth in 7 years. And my insurance covers it. Tell your doctor that you've tried singulair before and it gave you a skin rash. Your doctor can then get prior authorization because you can't take the cheaper med. Still, I can't wait until the patent runs out and it goes generic. Easy breathing, everyone!
