Allergy Drops (Sublingual Immunotherapy or SLIT) Now Offered!

Allergy drops or sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is a viable alternative for patients who do not wish to or are unable to undergo allergy shots. These drops are administered under the tongue daily and can be given at home. Such patients may include those afraid of needles, patients who travel a lot (therefore unable to go to a physician office to get weekly allergy shots), patients on beta blockers (which is a contra-indication to allergy shots), or children. For more information, click here.

The one downside is that allergy drops are NOT covered by health insurance at this time. To see other differences between allergy shots and allergy drops, click here.
