Allergy drops - Frequently Asked Questions

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.  

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.
