LOL at the nickname! Like it!

BNF lists 'sleep problems (insomnia, drowsiness, abnormal dreams, nightmares) under SE for Singulair.

I'm impressed you've got this far! My DS was prescribed these at a similar age and we never managed to get him to take them, can you speak to the consultant or whoever prescribed them for you, or do you have a peadiatric respiratory nurse, ours is good at responding to queries on the phone.

Why has he been prescribed these? my ds was constantly wheezy so the gp prescribed singulair but I never started them, he has an egg and nut allergy, then I had him tested and found out that he is allergic to dairy, stopped this and 4 months on he is not wheezy, he still gets his asthma with a cold and usually has to have one to three days of steriod tablets, but we tried everything, we even put solid wood flooring in because my gp was convinced that he was allergic to house dust mites, he was then tested and guess what he is not allergic to dust mites!

My ds was in and out of hospital for almost 2.5 years until I finally got him tested, our gps were not helpful, now our doctor is Mark Porter and he has been great! Have you had your ds tested?

No, our gp took a blood test and sent it off to be tested, he tested for house dust mites, egg (which we already new) nuts, dairy and grass pollen. It took me 18 months to get him tested, in the end I changed doctors.

yes he had blood tested for egg, milk, tomatoes and strawberries.came out v high to egg and milk. not much u can do about dust mites apart from housework and not keeing fluffy toys!
