How should I take Singulair (montelukast)?

Singulair (montelukast) should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Be sure to take the exact dose recommended by your doctor at roughly the same time each day. Singulair comes in tablet, chewable tablet and granules. You can take Singulair with or without food. If you or your child use the granular form, open the pouch right before dosing, place all of the granules in the mouth at once and swalllow. You can follow with the liquid of your choice. Granules can also be mixed with one teaspoon of breast milk, baby formula, applesauce, mashed carrots, rice or ice cream. Do not mix Singular granules with any other foods or liquid, and never save any food or liquid that's been mixed with the drug since it must be used within 15 minutes.
