 5  Chemical intolerance to fragrances I did not realize I had side effects, but looking back after reading patient comments I realize that the insomnia and irritability, greatly reduced tolerance for stress, etc., may well have been side effects of Singulair. When I suddenly stopped taking Singulair the first time after about 8 months (because I left the environment that was causing my original symptoms), after a few days I developed truly crippling lower back pain, like a muscle spasm at the top of my hip bone.
