My 17 year old has been suffering with allergy problems for years?The allergist recommended Immunotherapy. It is for life, time consuming and very expensive. Anyone who has gone through this, can you say it is worth it? We hate to put him through this if it doesn't help.
To be effective, allergy shots are given on a schedule that involves two phases:
The buildup phase generally takes three to six months. Typically shots are given one to three times a week. During the buildup phase, the allergen dose is gradually increased with each shot.
The maintenance phase generally continues for three to five years or longer. You'll need maintenance shots about once a month.
