Does Popular Asthma Medication Singulair Cause Depression?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

People with asthma often experience anxiety and depression. And on the flip side, depression is associated with worse asthma symptoms. So, what’s the connection between these health conditions?  

There’s also the question of whether asthma medications themselves cause depression. In 2009, the FDA required packaging for the Singulair generic, montelukast, to have a warning that the popular asthma medication may cause behavioral side effects—including depression and suicidal thoughts.

Camber Pharmaceuticals has issued a voluntary recall of one lot of montelukast (Singulair), used to treat symptoms of asthma, due to a medication mix-up.

More than one-third of US adults may be using a prescription medication associated with depression and/or suicidal symptoms as a possible side effect, a recent study finds. Over 200 medications, including birth control pills, blood pressure medications, antacids, and painkillers, were cited with these concerns.

The study, carried out by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago, found that 38% of adults interviewed from 2013 to 2014 used medications associated with depression as a possible side effect in the 30 days prior to the interview compared to 35% from 2005 to 2006. See More

Is Your Asthma Inhaler “Covered”, but Still Too Expensive? — Here’s How to Save

Tori Marsh
Tori Marsh -

This year has been tough for people with asthma. Pollen season ran especially long and just weeks after it peaked, we now have the California wildfires spreading smoke to the majority of US states and causing a spike in symptom flare ups. On top of that, asthma inhalers today are expensive. Popular ones can cost upwards of $500 per month and many are inadequately covered by insurance plans.

So what’s going on with insurance coverage for these lifesaving medications and how can you save? First, high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) and restrictions on coverage are two ways insurance can leave you with a heavy bill. See More

Prescription Quantity Limits: What To Do When Insurance Plans Limit Your Coverage

Benita Lee
Benita Lee -

As with other forms of coverage restrictions, insurance plans use quantity limits to ensure patient safety and control healthcare costs. Quantity limits define how much of a drug you can fill during a specific time period, but they can be a hassle. Here’s how to navigate your plan’s policies, so you can still get the medications you need.

How do quantity limits work?

Generally speaking, plans will review clinical and FDA literature to decide how much of a drug they will cover in a certain time period. See More

Tori Marsh
Tori Marsh -

Patients often turn to generic medications for cheaper alternatives to brand-name drugs, but over the past couple years, prices for generics have increased substantially, and some of the most expensive generic medications run above $100 for a month’s supply. Every year, people are paying more for them despite insurance coverage due to high deductibles and formulary changes.

Last month, we reported on the most expensive drugs on the market today. See More

Elizabeth Davis
Elizabeth Davis -

If you’ve got health insurance, now’s a good time to be paying attention. Each year, prescription coverage – the “formulary” – changes, and yours will likely be changing in 2018.

Express Scripts and Caremark, companies that handle pharmacy benefits for more than 200 million Americans, are removing more than 80 prescription medications from their formularies at the end of 2017. There is a silver lining for some of you though—almost 20 currently excluded drugs will be covered in 2018. See More

2015 In Review: The Good(Rx) and Bad

Elizabeth Davis
Elizabeth Davis -

2015 was another tough year for American’s health care budgets. Insurance premiums increased, coverage was dropped for a number of important drugs, and overall we’re spending more for our health care.

Don’t break out the antidepressants yet—it’s not all bad news. A number of important drugs went generic, which will generally mean huge savings and lower costs. Plus, a large number of drugs actually decreased in price. See More

Six Ways to Get Rid of Cough from Post-Nasal Drip

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Post-nasal drip has a new name: upper airway cough syndrome  or UACS. If you have a cough that won’t go away, along with nasal congestion, “dripping” mucus down the back of your throat, the sensation that you need to clear your throat, a hoarse voice, or if you wake up in the morning with “gunk” in the back of your throat . . . this may be you.

This very common cause of a cough that won’t go away, upper airway cough syndrome, can be allergic or nonallergic and may be related to a sinusitis. See More

Is Singulair Available Without a Prescription?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

No, and it looks like it won’t be. Here are the reasons a panel of experts just voted to tell the FDA not to allow Singulair to be sold without a prescription. Singulair, now available as the generic montelukast, is a popular and effective allergy medication also used in asthmatics who have allergies. It is a leukotriene receptor antagonist which works differently than the other allergy meds (the non-sedating antihistamines like Claritin, Allegra or Zyrtec). See More
