Possible Link Between Singulair and Suicide

The Food and Drug Administration said it is investigating a possible connection between the use of Merck & Co.’s asthma drug Singulair and moods of depression and suicidal behavior. Conclusions and recommendations to the public will be told as soon as a review is complete, but the FDA estimates it may take up to nine months to complete. The FDA said it is working with Merck to evaluate a possible link and that it has requested the company to evaluate Singulair study data for more information about suicidality and suicide.
