For decades, allergy doctors have treated seasonal and indoor allergies in essentially the same way. Patients are prescribed years of weekly shots or medications that leave them feeling tired or wired. It’s that, or turn their lives upside down trying to avoid their allergy triggers.
With choices like these, a change was overdue. Enter sublingual immunotherapy, more commonly known as allergy drops. Formulated around patients’ unique needs, this treatment introduces small amounts of safe antigens into the immune system day by day and season by season.
Within weeks, these substances ease people’s symptoms by making them less sensitive to their allergy triggers. After taking drops for several years, many patients find they can stop the treatment and live allergy-free for decades.
