Immunotherapy is not new, in fact, it has been safely used for more than a century to help treat allergies. It works by slowly exposing the body’s immune system to trace amounts of the unique allergens that you are allergic to. As the body gets used to these substances, the immune system learns to respond to them normally and allergic reactions are reduced. In some cases, allergies can be eliminated.
An immunotherapy treatment plan is fully customized to your allergies. A comprehensive plan is developed based on your detailed allergy testing and your unique profile. This plan will safely address the allergens that your body attacks.
Once your allergies are known, you have the option to choose from two immunotherapy treatment plans: allergy shots or allergy drops. Shots and drops are both safe and effective and provide long-term relief. You can pick the treatment option that works best for your needs.
- Allergy Shots deliver the treatment solution through a small injection that is delivered in the doctor’s office weekly. These shots are safe and are administered under close medical supervision.
- Allergy Drops are a modern alternative that uses a small drop of liquid under the tongue rather than a shot. Drops are highly effective and safe enough for you to administer yourself at home, at the office, or any place that is convenient for you.
Currently, there are no subcutaneous (shots) or sublingual immunotherapy for food allergies. Both allergy drops and allergy shots are safe and effective for most allergy problems.
Are allergy drops or shots more effective?
The answer depends on you. Allergy shots and allergy drops are proven safe and effective immunotherapy treatment options for most allergies.

Allergy Drops: Putting You in Control of Your Allergy Treatment
Allergies make life difficult because the symptoms that accompany them impact every part of your life. Whether you are awake or asleep, your allergy symptoms make it difficult to breathe, see, smell, taste, and enjoy all that life has to offer. Symptom control often becomes the first priority for allergy sufferers, but symptom control through medication is far from perfect. Over-the-counter medications sometimes manage symptoms, but never provide total relief.
Allergy drops put you in control of your treatment plan because they help to control symptoms while working to reduce or eliminate the underlying allergy. As your body’s immune system is retrained to respond normally to allergens, you will quickly find symptom relief even as you look forward to allergy relief.
Allergy drops remove all of the barriers to lasting allergy relief. Allergy shots are effective, but the scheduling demands and discomfort often keep patients away. With allergy drops, you will experience:
- Comfort - no needles are required. A simple liquid treatment solution is placed under the tongue and allowed to sit for 1 - 2 minutes before swallowing.
- Convenience - no need to miss work. You can deliver your allergy drop treatments at a place and time that is convenient for you.
- Cost - Allergy drops cost are comparable to allergy shots and are often covered by most insurance. Additional cost savings are experienced by most patients when travel time, transportation cost, and loss of work time are considered.
You can have a safe and effective allergy treatment plan without having to schedule your life around doctor's appointments and shot schedules. Allergy drops break down all the barriers to your life beyond allergy symptoms.
