@mshamdann; @astaingegerdm -Yesterday I couldn't find any studies that answered your question. But today I tried again and found this:
https://www.psychreg.org/montelukast-mental-health/
Please keep in mind that no matter what is written about the side effects of any drug doesn't mean that they happen all the time or to every person. I'm sure that you know this.

Does this help at all?

@mshamdann– Have you talked to your child's doctor to determine if you will continue to give your son Montal?
