Sublingual Allergy Therapy
Allergy Drops. Not Shots. At-Home Therapy.
Up until now, allergy sufferers had two choices. You could endure weekly trips to the doctor’s office to receive inconvenient and sometimes painful shots. Or go without the medicine you need and live with itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, postnasal drip, congestion, headaches, asthma, and sinusitis. Neither choice was optimal. Now there is a better way – allergy treatments at home. In use for over 70 years in Europe, Sublingual lmmunotherapy is available right now from ENT and Allergy Specialists.
Here’s how it works. You (or the allergy sufferer in your family) meet with one of our board-certified physicians to diagnose your allergy. We create an allergy serum specifically for you that will alleviate your specific symptoms and treat your allergy. The drops are easy to use in the comfort of your home. Just use the drop dispenser daily to place the drop under your tongue. It’s that easy. And you’re on your way to feeling better. Schedule an appointment today!
Sublingual lmmunotherapy Questions and Answers:
What is the difference between Sublingual lmmunotherapy and traditional allergy treatments?
- Immunotherapy involves the administration of gradually increasing doses of the allergen over a period of time to desensitize the patient. It is the only known treatment that modifies the immune response and treats the cause rather than the symptoms. Unlike traditional allergy shots which are administered in a doctor’s office, Sublingual lmmunotherapy drops are taken at your convenience at home. With Sublingual immunotherapy, there are no shots.
- Just use the drop dispenser to place the required drops under your tongue.
Are Sublingual lmmunotherapy Drops safe?
- Yes. In fact, they are safer than traditional allergy shots. This form of allergy treatment has been used in Europe for the last 70 years.
Are there any side effects of the treatment?
- Cochrane Reviews, the internationally recognized authority, concluded; “In reviewing 60 trials we found a significant reduction in symptom and medication scores in patients treated with sublingual immunotherapy compared to placebo. There were no serious adverse reactions reported in the included trials and no patient needed the use of adrenaline (which is used for serious reactions). This updated Cochrane Review, therefore, reinforces the conclusions of the earlier review (in 2003) in confirming the efficacy and safety of sublingual immunotherapy.”
