Sublingual Immunotherapy as Treatment for Allergies
Dr. Frank Brettschneider focuses on helping patients who have health conditions, such as allergies, that affect the throat, ears, and nose. Among the types of treatments for allergies Dr. Frank Brettschneider provides at his practice is sublingual immunotherapy.

Sublingual immunotherapy is designed to provide patients with help for allergy systems. In this form of therapy, a medical professional prepares drops to be placed beneath the patient’s tongue. These drops, which a doctor specially mixes for each patient, contain tiny amounts of substances the patient has allergic responses to, based on the results of allergy testing conducted beforehand. This treatment continues on a daily basis, with the patient self-administering the drops at home. 

For sublingual immunotherapy to have the best long-term outcome, doctors often recommend that patients continue treatment for between three and five years. As the treatment period progresses, the dosage will become higher as the body adapts. While most health insurance does not pay for this treatment, sublingual immunotherapy has a relatively low cost. A patient might pay in the area of $15 to $20 on a weekly basis, for instance. In many cases, the positive effects of the treatment in terms of quality of life make sublingual immunotherapy a good choice for people with allergies.
