Great! Awesome staff. Compassionate & knowledgeable physician.
Do you have allergies but don’t want to start on allergy treatment because you don’t want to come into the office every week to get an allergy shot?
We have an option for you!
We offer sublingual drops as a treatment for allergies. Sublingual immunotherapy, or SLIT, is a form of immunotherapy that involves placing drops of allergen extracts under the tongue. This form of immunotherapy has been used for years in Europe and has recently seen increased interest in the United States.
Drops can be used for treatment of dust mites, animal dander, cockroach, molds, weeds, trees, and grass pollen. However, we do not use them for food, chemical, or insect allergies.
Who would benefit from drops?
- off shore workers
- people living in rural areas, unable to get to a clinic or cannot drive
- severe asthmatics
- people with needle phobias
- small children
It’s so convenient! Patients will be able to take their custom prepared vial of drops from the comfort of their own home. With sublingual immunotherapy, you’ll require less office visits than for treatments like weekly injections. No need to take time off work, or out of your busy schedule. You can even travel with your drops.
Sublingual drops are not for everyone. Your doctor will determine if you are a candidate for them. Call the Acadian Allergy Center at (337) 237 0779 today to schedule an appointment to discuss sublingual immunotherapy.
