As I mentioned before, I have no answers. Regardless of how small Merck believes the population of Singulair patients who suffer neuro-psychiatric disorders is, I do not believe that any patient should be ignored. It also seems that many companies have studied this area in depth and more than one company knows a lot more than we know about why it is possible for these side effects to happen.
