Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)

Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) is an amazing alternative to shots and we are one of the few allergy offices offering this therapy in Southern California. Allergen immunotherapy is a method of exposing the body to very small amounts of environmental allergens to which you are sensitive over an extended period of time so that you slowly become tolerant to those allergens and have have fewer allergy and asthma symptoms.

Studies show that sublingual immunotherapy may be as effective as traditional allergy shots, or subcutaneous immunotherapy, but there are not enough head-to-head-comparison studies to show this for certain.

    I have been going for scit shots on a weekly basis for a number of years. Over the past three weeks they have not been effective. What could be the problem? And would slit be an alternative worth trying?

      If scit has not been effective for the last 3 weeks, Try and decrease spacing from every 3 weeks to every 2 weeks and see if this helps. SLIT is an option if you find coming into the office too inconvenient. Hope this helps.
