We offer allergy drops, or sublingual drops, which differ from pharmacotherapy. Allergy drops are administered under the tongue whereas pharmacotherapy are allergy medications such as antihistamines, nasal steroid sprays or inhalers.
- Allergy drops have been found to be fully effective whereas only 50% of pharmacotherapy users were satisfied
- Treatment time for allergy drops is two minutes daily (in the comfort of your home) vs. 1-30 minutes per day for pharmacotherapy.
- Typical treatment time for allergy drops is four years, opposed to pharmacotherapy treatments, which are lifelong.
- Approximate monthly cost of allergy drops is $106 vs. $210 monthly for pharmacotherapy treatments.
The advantages to using allergy drops vs. pharmacotherapy treatments are significant. For information on allergy testing, see our blog on allergy testing: http://www.doctorhermann.com/blog/bid/129091/How-to-Treat-Food-Allergies-in-the-Tampa-St-Pete-Area
