Allergy Immunotherapy

Do you have Allergies?

Nasal congestion, sneezing, itchy eyes, headache, fatigue... the list goes on and on. You've probably tried prescriptions and over-the-counter allergy medications, but these only mask the symptoms, and only for as long as you keep taking them. Once you stop taking the medication, your symptoms return.

Take Control of your Allergies

Is Immunotherapy or allergy shots right for you??? Let Pulmonary & Sleep Medicine help you by testing you for allergens, and developing a better plan for you and your allergy needs.

  1. Get Tested
    Tell your healthcare provider about your allergy symptoms and any possible allergen exposures. They can help you decide if a skin test could help you identify the allergies that may be causing your problems. The skin test is a painless test that applies allergens to your skin with results in 15 minutes. Skin testing is a covered benefit under most insurance plans.
  2. Get Treated
    AlleShield® Immunotherapy is administered as a series of small allergy shots. The first series of immunotherapy is a low-dose treatment called the "build-up phase" that helps your body adjust to the allergens, developing a tolerance level. The second series is the "maintenance phase" where a theraputic dose for each allergen is acheived. This treatment is safe and very effective for both adults and children, and is covered by most insurance plans.
  3. Feel Better- for Life
    Although the recommended treatment span is two to four years, many people report feeling better much sooner. For some allergens, you may even start noticing improvement in your symptoms not long after staring treatment. The key to lifetime success is following the treatment schedule. This treatment is educating your immune system to tolerate allergens and this process takes time to achieve the fully desired results.
