Allergy Sufferers Combat Severe Spring With AllergyEasy’s No-hassle Alternative To Allergy Shots
This spring is a doozey for pollen, but AllergyEasy is helping people around the country weather the season with no-hassle oral allergy drops instead of painful shots.

Whether you call it a pollen “tsunami” or storm, the 2015 spring season has unleashed a torrent of allergens, but thanks to AllergyEasy sublingual allergy drops, patients across the country are combating the onslaught without the pain or hassle of allergy shots.
AllergyEasy helps physicians nationwide provide their patients with sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) drops. SLIT drops are growing in popularity as a safer, simpler alternative to allergy shots. As with shots, treatment start with a liquid (saline) solution containing trace amounts of common allergens (grasses, weeds, trees, etc.) The solution is dosed under the tongue as droplets that absorb into the bloodstream (rather than through injections). The drops help patients develop an immunity to the allergens that once made them miserable.
AllergyEasy director, Stuart Agren, M.D., calls the drops the “wave of the future” for allergy sufferers.
“Gone are the days when people had time to go to the doctors office a couple times a week for allergy shots,” said Dr. Agren. “Drops offer relief without all the inconvenience of injections.”
Because drops have a higher safety profile than shots, they can be taken at home (rather than at the doctor’s office). They can also be prescribed for younger children than shots can. Additionally, they have been shown to be effective with food allergies in ways that allergy shots have not.
According to Dr. Agren, yet another advantage of the drops is that they can treat for more allergens than shots can.
“With most shot programs, you can expect to get treated for a small selection of local pollens,” said Dr. Agren. “With drops, we can safely treat for a large mix of allergens.”
Agren said that AllergyEasy drops contain most major allergens from around the country and world which can lend greater protection as pollens in the environment shift. (People may move or travel, neighbors may landscape with new plants, etc.)
While medications such as antihistamines or nasal sprays may work for short-term relief, allergy immunotherapy (whether through shots or drops) helps treat the underlying allergy-not just its symptoms.
According to Dr. Agren, patients may be candidates for allergy immunotherapy drops if their allergies last for four or more months of the year or if they are bad enough-even for shorter durations-to significantly affect one’s quality of life.
AllergyEasy helps allergy doctors around the country provide sublingual immunotherapy (allergy drops) to their patients who suffer with allergies to pollen and food allergies (including dairy allergy, wheat allergy, nut allergy, fruit allergy and more.) AllergyEasy can connect patients to a doctor in their area who offers sublingual allergy treatment.
