Should I Talk To My Doctor?

In deciding whether immunotherapy is appropriate for you, your doctor will consider a few things such as whether you have specific sensitivity determined by testing, how long you experience allergy symptoms each year, the severity of your symptoms, how well other treatments bring you relief and whether you are looking for alternatives to your current medication(s).

People who experience allergies for more than just a couple of months a year may be good candidates for allergy shots as are those who find they need multiple medications to achieve relief.
