First time post...A testimonial and question for the group...

I have not seen much posted about Singulair? Does anyone else take it?

I take it for asthma. About 14 months ago I stopped taking it thinking that it was not working for me. I immediately started a cycle. After 2 or 3 days, I tried to figure out if I had done anything differently and recalled I quit the Singulair. I took some immediately and did not have another headache.

Now I'm in another cycle. I've had 2 headaches every day (one in the evening and one at night) for the past 10 days. The Imetrex injections have been working great.

However, I always try to doctor myself, and due to my past experience, I thought that I would double my Singulair from 10mg once a day to twice a day. (I first read the clinical trials in which the makers gave patients 200mg per day for 22 weeks without side effects). I took the first double dosage yesterday and was not jerked out of bed with a headache for the fist time in 10 nights. My question is, am I crazy? Is this coincidence or does anyone have a doctor out there that prescribes them Singulair for clusters?
