My doctor insists I take Singulair for my asthma. It doesn't have a generic and is very expensive. Is there anything else I can try that would work as well?
At this time, there are no generic equivalents to Singulair, unfortunately. In fact, there are not many inexpensive asthma medicines on the market presently. If you go on the Singulair website, they are offering a $20 off coupon you might qualify for. You can also check into various prescription assistance programs.
Another treatment you might try if allergies are at the root of your asthma, is the saline nasal rinse, such as the NetiPot. This is a fairly natural (and inexpensive) way to rinse allergens and mucus out of your nose, which could help make your breathing easier overall. Some people are swearing by this "everything old is new again" treatment.
There is a generic for Singulair. It is just not availible in the U.S because of patent laws. Its availible in India and can be found through www.progressiverx.com for a really big discount. The FDA only alows individuals to import a 90 supply of medications from overseas and shipping can take a few weeks, so if you go this option make sure you plan ahead. Good luck.
