    Jojo, I tried Singulair for a few months, to see if it would help my IC symptoms. It didn't help, so I quit taking them. I had no side effects. We are all different, so you might still give it a try. It might work for you.

      I take Singular during allergy season for me that is June through to October. Singular worked great for my allergies. It did not help at all with my IC symptoms.

      Hope that helps,

        I take Singulair daily for my asthma/allergies---it really helps that stuff, but doesn't do anything for the bladder. At least it doesn't make me flare up though

        Hope that helps...


        *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
        *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
        *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
        *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

          Same as Sarojini (did I get the spelling right? LOVE the cat pic!) - Singulair helps the asthma but doesn't touch the IC.
