Are oral drops scientifically proven?

In the world-renowned Cochrane Review,* a meta-analysis reviewed 22 studies involving 979 patients on sublingual immunotherapy and concluded that sublingual immunotherapy is a safe treatment which reduces symptoms and medication requirements in allergic rhinitis. This is just one of dozens of studies conducted worldwide establishing the safety and efficacy of SLIT.

SLIT is affirmed by the World Health Organization and the ARIA guidelines (Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma). In addition, our clinical studies show that more than 80 percent of allergic patients and more than 90 percent of asthmatics report symptom relief within the first few months of starting treatment at the Family Allergy Clinic.

Why choose oral drops?
Medications may help temporarily, but your symptoms will keep returning without a long-term solution. That’s where oral allergy drops come in! They may help re-train your immune system to stop overreacting to allergens in the environment.¬† Oral drops are safer than allergy shots and have been shown to be safe for children under age 5.

How do oral drops work?
Oral drops contain extracts of allergens (pollens, pet dander, etc.) found in nature. As you take the drops daily under the tongue, your body can learn to tolerate more of these allergens  and stop overreacting to them in ways that lead to irritating symptoms.
