Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) drops
Sublingual Immunotherapy treatments are offered for both environmental and food allergens. SLIT involves application of small “squirts” of treatment three times daily under the tongue. Each treatment bottle lasts for 3 months and is formulated to be a bit stronger than the previous bottle until a “maintenance” concentration is achieved. Once you reach maintenance dose, you stay on it until you reach desensitization (meaning there is markedly reduced or even no reaction to exposure to target allergens) and finally tolerance (meaning there is no reaction even after the treatment is stopped). In most cases, treatment lasts for 3-5 years.
*If you have lost the instructions for how to use your SLIT drops, or need to request a refill, please see our forms page. *
*We will continue to offer environmental therapy treatment through injectable vials as well, which are custom-formulated based on people's individual allergy testing reactions.
