SUBLINGUAL DROPS

SLIT (Sublingual Immunotherapy) is a European method that allows administration of immunotherapy at home. It is safe and very efficient way to treat allergy and asthma without medicines. Drops contain only biological serum and glycerin – same treatment serum that is used for allergy shots.

Our Clinic proudly provides SLIT since 2010. We are helping people in many US States and in other countries (Russia, Israel, Montenegro etc.) to live allergy-free lives.

ORDER ALLERGY DROPS ONLINE!

You can order allergy drops with online appointment and laboratory/skin test results sent in the email.

SLIT is not covered by commercial insurances. You can use FLEX/FSA or HSA accounts to reduce the cost (it is your tax-free money!) The price of your monthly treatment depends on the dose and amount of allergens you need to treat. Although it is an out-of-pocket expense, our patients think it is affordable and convenient. Indeed, if you calculate the saved co-pays and visits for the allergy shots, SLIT becomes a number one choice for many.

SLIT works great for children as young as 4 years old and for adults:

  • No systemic reactions (anaphylaxis) has been reported with that (a huge advantage compared to traditional shots)
  • You can keep pets when starting treatments
  • Starts working fast. It takes only one month to build up the top (protective dose) compared to allergy shots (it takes up to 6-8 month to see the benefit)
  • No weekly clinic visits. You need 3-4 visits a year to ensure your treatment works great.
  • Freedom of time and travel. Your SLIT can go where you are! It does not require refrigeration and can be carried in your backpack or purse. Ask for a Doctor’s note when flying and taking drops on a plane.

  1. Cough and wheezing
  2. Nasal congestion and sinusitis
