Learn how allergy drops can help you safely, effectively, and conveniently treat the cause of your allergies.allergy relief | GA

How do allergy drops work?

Allergy drops work similar to allergy shots by delivering a slowly increasing dose of physician-prescribed antigen that builds the body’s tolerance to the allergens that cause your allergy symptoms. The differences is that the drops are placed under the tongue and affect the immune system through very specialized cells found there. Research shows these cells are a friendlier and more effective route for long-term tolerance, making it ideal for people who can’t tolerate or don’t respond to allergy shots. Treatment for most patients lasts between three to five years, depending upon severity of allergies and patient compliance.

What are the advantages of allergy drops?

Aside from being able to treat more patients, there are other advantages to allergy drops:

Lower cost, fewer clinic visits. Allergy drops are more affordable and require few clinic visits after your initial testing –typically only a few clinic visits the first year, and once every 6-12 months thereafter until visits are no longer needed depending upon the severity of your allergies.

More convenient, fewer medications. You can take allergy drops at home or wherever you need to be, making it much easier to stay with treatment. Most patients find they need less medication to control symptoms after beginning allergy drops.

More healthy days. The end benefit is simply feeling better. Patients typically report fewer clinic visits and hospitalizations for allergy-related issues, and less time lost from work and school, taking drops consistently.

Who can benefit from allergy drops?

Although most people who suffer from allergies and related illnesses can benefit from allergy drops, they are especially helpful for people who can’t tolerate or don’t respond to allergy shots, including:

Allergies Did You Know…

Quote by Stuart W. Stoloff, MD: “People need to understand that the cost of not spending money to be healthy has a consequence that is sometimes the greater cost of being unhealthy—cost in terms of morbidity, cost in terms of missed days from work, absenteeism, presenteeism, poor ability to function in the usual domains of physical, social, emotional and mental.” From The Journal of Family Practice Vol 61, No 2 February 2012
