What is Sublingual Immunotherapy?
Sublingual immunotherapy drops are a convenient, cost-effective way to cure allergies. Similarly to traditional immunotherapy injections, sublingual drops provide the patient with small doses of allergens, slowly building up the immune system’s tolerance. The drops are tailor-made to fit each patient and their specific allergies.
Sublingual immunotherapy drops can cure a variety of allergies, including dust mites, pollen, mold, dander, seasonal allergies and even food!
Who can benefit from Sublingual Immunotherapy?
Sublingual allergy drops are safe for both adults and children who are frequent sufferers of allergies. Because sublingual drops can be taken anywhere, they are the perfect form of immunotherapy for those with busy schedules who don’t want to come in for frequent office visits.
What is the difference between Sublingual Immunotherapy and Allergy Shots?
Immunotherapy drops are cheaper than allergy shots and require fewer office visits. Sublingual immunotherapy drops are taken orally from the comfort of your home and do not require painful injections like allergy shots. Sublingual drops may even be transported from place to place, so you don’t need to plan your schedule around allergy shot appointments.
How do I get started with Sublingual Immunotherapy?
The first step to any immunotherapy treatment is to schedule an allergy test. Allergy tests will pinpoint your exact allergens and allow us to create your individualized bottle of immunotherapy drops. Drops usually take between one-two weeks to be prepared, and then you will be able to take them home to complete your immunotherapy journey!
