How do allergy drops work?

Allergy drops, also known as sublingual immunotherapy, or SLIT, introduces low doses of the specific allergens that you are allergic to 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. The recommended course of treatment is 5 years for you to gain long term symptom relief.

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.

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.

Do allergy drops treat food allergies?

What’s the difference between taking allergy drops and over the counter antihistamines or nasal sprays?

Allergy drops are immunotherapy, the medical treatment that doctors use to reduce your sensitivity to allergies. Each patient receives drops that are specific to their allergies. The strength of the drops is gradually increased for the first year (build-up phase). After the immune system has “learned” from the first 6 to 12 months of therapy, you should see a reduction of the inflammation generated by the over-reactive immune system. After five years, most people find that they can enjoy continued allergy reduction without needing any further drop therapy. When taken as prescribed, allergy drops are a way to eliminate or significantly reduce the allergic reaction altogether, whereas over the counter medications only treat the symptoms, not the cause. Additionally, over the counter medications and antihistamines only work when you take them and are not a long-term way to treat allergies for good.
