in Europe for more than 40 years. Because of their safety, people generally
treat themselves at home. Allergy shots, on the other hand, are given in a doctor’s
office and the patient is monitored for 20 to 30 minutes. Serious and life-threatening reactions have and do occur with allergy injections. My youngest patient was 2 years old when she started natural allergy drops. Within a few months of starting drops she was completely free of allergy symptoms and rarely has the need to use allergy medication.
Over the counter allergy medications have problems too, they can raise blood pressure, cause your heart to race, make you drowsy or keep you awake at night.

Yes, but most our patients find they need less allergy medication within a very short time after starting sublingual allergy drops.

In over 9 years of treating hundreds of patients, the answer is definitely yes! In fact, I believe they are superior to shots.

The quick response time with allergy drops leads to higher compliance and patient satisfaction.

Chronic allergies are not going away when you treat symptoms with medication.
9. Will my insurance cover the costs of the allergy drops?
At the present time, health
insurance carriers will not cover the cost of allergy or sublingual drops. However, we suspect this may change within the next year.
20. Why have an Allergist treat my allergies?
Because primary doctors are in the habit of treating allergies and asthma with pills or sprays. They're not treating the cause or the underlying problem. So easy to write prescriptions rather than spend the necessary time to uncover the problem.
