Singulair Linked to Problems in Children
Written By: Rheingold, Giuffra, Ruffo & Plotkin LLP
Merck's number one selling drug, Singulair, has been reported to cause behavioral problems in children as reported by myfoxdc.com. Children who taking this popular asthma medication have shown to exhibit hostility, agression, and irritability. In 2008 the FDA investigated Singulair and it's link to nueropsychiatric events, which sometimes can lead to suicidal behavior. The label now includes a warning about causing this behavior.
Some parents believe that Singulair shouldn't be given to children but because of Merck's agressive marketing techniques it ends up being prescribed anyways.
