Allergy drops are also known as “sublingual immunotherapy”. Allergy drops are a convenient form of allergen immunotherapy that works by putting small amounts of allergen (the substances that cause your allergies) under your tongue. Specialized cells under the tongue called dendritic cells capture the allergens and signal the immune system to start building tolerance.
What are the benefits of allergy drops?
Allergy drops have been proven to be both safe and effective for many types of allergies. The drops typically begin relieving symptoms within the first year, but sometimes these effects are even noticed within a few months.
Once-a-day allergy drops are portable and easy to use. You may use them in the comfort of your own home. This will help you follow your treatment plan, and increase your ability to continue therapy as directed by your prescriber.
No need to worry about soreness from injections, or concerns with needles.
How will my prescriber know what allergies I have?
Based on your symptoms and allergy history, your prescriber will order a panel of allergy tests for the most common allergens, including grasses, trees, weeds, molds, pet dander, dust mites and/or foods.
Who may use allergy drops?
- Children and adults
- People with multiple allergies, including pollens, molds, pet dander, or dust mites
- People who are not able to commit to weekly allergy shots or prefer a more convenient therapy
- People with side effects to allergy medications or reactions to allergy shots
- Allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, conjunctivitis or asthma sufferers
How much do allergy drops cost?
The base price for a 12-week supply of allergy drops costs $155.00. The actual cost of your prescription depends on the number and types of allergens selected for treatment.
Will insurance pay for the allergy drops?
Allergy drops are a compounded medication which may be covered by newer prescription plans. We will send you a receipt that you can submit to your plan for reimbursement.
