Are There Any Over The Counter Alternatives For Singulair?

Are there any over-the-counter alternatives for Singulair? Thanks.

Answer

Yes, there are others. The most common is zafrilukast (Accolate), although zileuton (Zyflow) is yet another option. You should always check with your doctor that it's all right for you to take the generic formula of the medication. Sometimes an insurer will insist on it, but sometimes the doctor will prefer you take the name-brand version of the drug.
