If you can not reduce or come off the allergy medications, you are likely a candidate for allergy vaccination (also known as “allergy shots” or allergen immunotherapy).
Now the allergen immunotherapy is availble as oral drops as well, for patients who can not commit to weekly injections in a medical setting. The oral or sublingual drops are considered safe and can be administered at home. Either form of allergen immunotherapy helps reduce and in many patients, eliminate the dependence on allergy medications.
