Allergy tablets


You may have heard that there are some new allergy treatments available. The FDA just recently approved 2 different grass tablets (Grastek and Oralair) and a tablet for ragweed allergy (Ragwitek). There are differences between these tablets, including allergens contained in each, age restrictions and dosing schedule. However, all three of them provide a sublingual (“under the tongue”) form of immunotherapy. Certainly, these products are not right for everyone, but for the right patient there is a new treatment that may be worth discussing with your allergy provider.
