A PILL TO TREAT HAY FEVER
Instead of having to run to the allergist for your allergy shots,
the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is going to make life easier for you.
Recently, the FDA approved, the first ever, under the tongue pill, Oralair,
to treat hay fever caused by certain grass pollens.
HOW IT WORKS
- The initial dose is taken in a doctor's office so that the patient can be monitored for any
- The follow up doses are taken at home
- Take the 1-a-day pill
four months before the start of the grass
pollen season & continue
taking it for the duration of the season
- So depending on where you live in the world, you may have to wait until next summer to try these pills
- Oralair is made by Stallergenes S.A. of France
- Most common side effects reported by patients taking the pills were ear, mouth & tongue
itching, swelling of the mouth & throat irritation.
