Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is the latest, most convenient treatment option to treat allergies. SLIT is often referred to as allergy drops. This treatment replaces the need for allergy shots by allowing you to self-administer the drops under your tongue once-daily.
Allergy drops reduce your need for weekly or monthly office visits that accompany out-dated allergy shots/injections. Allergy drops can also improve long-term allergy control. They may significantly reduce your need for prescription and over-the-counter allergy medications.

Spring allergy season is fast approaching, and for some parts of the country, it started in February. Hard to imagine, with snow on the ground everywhere I look! However, I know my allergies will catch up with me soon enough.
If you have spring allergies, then trees are likely the culprit. You can get your local allergy outlook at sites like https://www.pollen.com/. You can view pollen counts, your current allergy season, and view a national allergy map.
Those of you who started sublingual immunotherapy prior to the spring allergy season should be less symptomatic than those of us who either waited too long to start therapy or haven’t been to our provider to get allergy tested/treatment.
It’s not too late to begin a sublingual immunotherapy program to treat the underlying cause of your allergies. Check with us to see if there’s a provider in your area that treats allergies with our allergy drops.
