Singulair Compensation and Settlements in 2021 – Start Here
Asthma has for a long time been a condition with no singular known cause. It can cause significant disability and the individual must carry with them an inhaler at all times. Over the last decade or so, the role of esonephils or specialized white blood cells has been explored and medications that lower the same developed in an attempt to alleviate the discomfort and life-threatening complications that are sometimes linked with the condition. Asthma affects the lungs and the airways, making it difficult for the individual to breathe with ease. Should they not have a steroid inhaler with them, individuals with asthma may collapse and lose consciousness. Asthma has no cure, so it must be managed for the duration of the indivudual’s life. Singulair is a leukotriene inhibitor which in effect blocks the inflammation that is associated with this compound, thereby stopping airways from swelling up and constricting, which then alleviates symptoms associated with asthma. Singulair has been used for over two decades, but it was only starting in 2018 that individuals that had been on it long-term started to notice mental health problems associated with taking the medication. As more people came out alleging the same side-effect, lawsuits started ramping up when it was discovered that the makers of Singulair were aware of the adverse effects on individual’s mental health but failed to let users know about the same. If you suffered poor mental health as a result of taking Singulair, this is YOUR CHANCE to seek justice and compensation by being part of the Singulair class action lawsuit, and we’re happy to help with this.

Singulair received FDA approval back in 1998, and it has been prescribed with confidence to tens of millions of individuals who live with asthma. It is intended to be taken as a tablet, and it is often accompanied with the use of an inhaler so that it is more effective.
Singulair safety came into question when the FDA issued a notice this year stating that individuals using Singulair have reported to feeling depressed, anxious and irritable, with some even stating that they started having homicidal thoughts while taking the medication. That said, it is not advised to stop taking Singulair since abrupt stopping without titration and without the help of a physician may make one’s asthma and mental health worse.
Some of the worrying symptoms associated with Singulair include:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Poor concentration
- Unable to focus for long periods of time
- Mood swings
- Obsessive compulsive disorder or OCD
The FDA instructed that Singulair come with a black box warning which would help patients know about the risk for developing depression while taking it. The FDA also suggested that Singulair should only be prescribed to individuals who have tried other medications but failed to manage their asthma.

Singulair Class Action Lawsuit Details
What we like to think of as class action lawsuits usually do not apply to pharmaceutical drug lawsuits because no two cases are alike. For instance, you may have suffered severe anxiety leading to the development of specific phobias after using Singulair for your asthma, while someone else was hospitalized due to suicidal or homicidal thoughts after long-term Singulair use. To this end, these lawsuits are consolidated into multidistrict litigation, or MDL where cases are tried at federal level and in accordance to their merit and what the patient suffered with regard to health complications or side effects. To this end, Singulair compensations and settlements will vary from one person to the next due to the unique needs of every individual.
Filing a Singulair lawsuit involves the following:
- We will determine if you are first eligible for a lawsuit
- We will gather evidence with your help to create a solid or compelling case
- We will file the claim against the manufacturer of the drug
- We will recover compensation either via a jury verdict or entering into negotiations
