If you believe you have a drug allergy, don’t ignore it. But did you know that most people who think they have a drug allergy probably don’t? Hear from our experts regarding five truths about drug allergies and how to separate fact from fiction.
Is it safe?
Yes, this procedure has been tested and proven effective and safe for use among allergy sufferers.
What does a typical treatment plan look like?
One typical plan would be a series of 50 allergy shots being replaced by a series of four to six shots which are administered over the course of a single day. The same dosage would be administered, but in a much smaller number of injections and on a dramatically shorter timeline.
What happens during this type of all-in-one-day treatment?
In between the injections, you will be closely monitored to make sure you don't experience any adverse reactions.
Is this a permanent solution?
For many patients, rush immunotherapy is in fact a permanent solution. While additional treatments may be necessary for a period of several months, the one-day session often provides the relief needed almost instantly.
