Traditional immunotherapy allergy treatment helps allergy sufferers manage symptoms of their environmental allergies. These allergy shots consist of weekly allergy shots given over the course of 50 weeks, or about a year. After that, bi-weekly and monthly injections continue for several months to continue building your tolerance.
Rush immunotherapy works much like allergy shots, the traditional treatment plan that helps allergy sufferers manage symptoms of common allergens. However, instead of 50 shots over the course of a year, our office will administer the same dosage within 4-6 shots over the course of a day. With controlled exposure to tiny amounts of allergens, you can slowly build up a tolerance.
With a shot given once every hour, you can build up that tolerance quicker. During your treatment, we will closely monitor you to ensure you don’t experience any adverse reactions. After your one-day session, there will be a follow up with additional treatments for a couple of months but, for many of our patients, rush immunotherapy provides a permanent cure for seasonal allergies.
Cluster immunotherapy is our newest and quickest way to allergy relief offered at Premier Allergy & Asthma. Our office will administer allergy shots during 8 shorter appointments over the course of 4-8 weeks. Once the cluster therapy is completed, you will be at the maintenance dose and will go straight to bi-weekly and monthly injections with our office for a couple months.
