I was just curious as to see whether Singulair (montelukast sodium) was legal in MMA or other competitive sports.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montelukast

I know other asthma drugs can have other banned active ingredients (eg stimulants). However, Singular does not seem to be a stimulant, and I don't see any other active ingredients in the drug. I looked at a WADA banned substances list briefly; I didn't find anything, but I'm not positive...

singulair acts differently than albuterol or terbutaline or salmeterol which may have stimulating effects at a subset of receptors that are stimulated by your body's natural stimulants like adrenaline. it is involved in the anti-inflammatory pathway and does not have stimulating effects.

Albuterol is legal or no in MMA? Ive never heard anything like this before. I would think that all ashma medications would be allowed.

I would hope it's legal. I've been taking it for years and have never seen any strength or stamina benefits.
