Allergy shots, also called “immunotherapy,” are given to increase your tolerance to the substances (allergens)
that provoke allergy symptoms. They usually are recommended for people who suffer from severe allergies or
for those who have allergy symptoms more than 3 months each year. Immunotherapy involves giving gradually
increasing doses of the substance, or allergen, to which the person is allergic. The incremental increases of the
allergen cause the immune system to become less sensitive to the substance, probably by causing production
of a “blocking” antibody, which reduces the symptoms of allergy when the substance is encountered in the
Allergy shots are given regularly (in the upper arm), with gradually increasing doses. When starting
immunotherapy, the injection may be given once or twice a week for several months. The dose is increased
each time until the maintenance dose is reached. If the shots are effective, the injections can be administered
every 2 to 4 weeks for 2 to 5 more years. You may become less sensitive to allergens during this time, and
your allergy symptoms will become milder and may even go away completely.
For two hours before and after your appointment, do not exercise or engage in vigorous activity. Tell us about
all the medications you are taking. Some medications can interfere with the treatment. You may
have to stop allergy shots if you are taking these medications. Tell us if you are pregnant or planning to
become pregnant, as you will have to stop allergy shots in this case.
