Frequency of allergy shots

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have been doing allergy shots very consistently, because allergies have always been a really big problem for me and not controlled by medications.

I have been on my full maintenance dose for 2 vials since March, 2016.  I am still currently getting the shots every week (Maintenance dose).

When is it normal to scale back the frequency of the shots, and how often do most people do them when they've been on them for the amount of time I have?

I feel like once a week is overkill, but my allergies have improved, so I'm afraid if I scale it back I might not have as good results.  But also, I want to be realistic with what a normal, effective frequency would be at this point.

Thanks!

Once I hit the maintenance dose I went to once a month. After some time the nurses encouraged me to just stop. I did and I wish I had not.
