Allergy drops: The easiest way to treat your allergies

Convenient. Affordable. Effective.

Clinical studies have proven allergy drops to be an effective alternative to allergy shots. Allergy drops are taken home and administered under the tongue by the patient, allowing them to only have to make clinical visits 1-2 times per year after the initial test.

Why allergy drops?

Allergy drops (including under-the-tongue applications) have been used for more than 100 years. In the last 30 years, research has shown that sublingual immunotherapy is safe and effective.

In a 2009 study, more than 2,300 patients who received sublingual immunotherapy experienced significant symptom relief and needed less medication for allergies and asthma.

Allergy drops are endorsed by the World Health Organization and the Allergic Rhinitis and Its Impact on Asthma guideline. For long-term relief, treatment generally takes 3-5 years.

What's the difference between drops and shots? 

Allergy drops are just as effective as shots and have the same timeline of treatment.

The areas where drops and shots differ are in safety and convenience. Shots have a risk of putting the patient into anaphylatic shock, but drops do not have that risk. Shots also require a weekly trip to your allergist for a painful injection followed by 30 minutes of sitting around before you can leave (due to the risk of anaphylatic shock outside of medical attention).

Here's what our patients have said about drops! 

"This is the first cedar season in 29 years that I haven't felt miserable!

Thanks Texan Allergy & Sinus Center for my drops! They are more precious than gold to me."

- Nancy M.

"With the drops, I don't have to go out of my way to get weekly shots at the clinic. I can finally get somewhere with my treatment.

I'm getting relief and able to finally live my life. I'm indebted to Texan Allergy & Sinus Center."

- Joan H.

"Before starting drops, I couldn't even be outside long enough to mow my lawn.

Now I can be outside all day and not be affected by my allergies!

- Reggie D.

How do allergy drops work?

Low doses of allergens are placed under the tongue where they’re absorbed by the body. Over time, the body will build up a tolerance to these allergens, lessening or completely eliminating the allergic reaction.

Are allergy drops just as effective as shots?

Yes! In a head-to-head study, both drops and shots were similarly effective. They’ve been endorsed by the World Health Organization, and many studies show that they are effective at reducing allergy symptoms, asthma symptoms, and the development of new allergies.

Can I be on seasonal allergy drops and food allergy drops at the same time?

Yes. You just have to wait 20 minutes between the different types of treatment.

Are allergy drops safe?

Yes. Allergy drops are extremely safe. Recent studies show that the risk of severe reactions with drops is approximately 1 per 100,000,000.

Is there a chance of a severe reaction at home from taking the drops?

It is extremely rare to have any severe reaction. The latest studies show the rate at 1 per 100,000,000. There have been some reactions reported, but all resolved.

Can children get allergy tested and take allergy drops?

Yes! We test on ages 4 months and up, although we typically don't treat with allergy drops until the child reaches 12 - 18 months of age.

What insurance plans are accepted?

We accept most major health insurance plans, including Scott & White. We also accept most Medicare and Medicaid plans.

Are allergy drops covered by insurance?

Typically, drops are not covered by insurance. However, more and more employers are starting to add this as a covered benefit.

What are the benefits of taking allergy drops?

- Safe & Effective: Allergy drops are clinically effective as proven in multiple, worldwide studies.

- Affordable: Allergy drops cost less than it would cost to take a daily over-the-counter allergy medication or nasal spray.

- Convenient: Allergy drops can be taken at home or on the go. No more taking time off work to get an allergy shot!

- Pain-free: Allergy drops are painless and easy to take.
