Question Tired after Allergy shot & new to the boards

I have restarted Allergy shots about 2 months ago, I had them about 10 yrs ago with good results.

This time, about 6-8 hours after the shot I get very tired and it last for about 12 - 24 hours. My allergeist says this can happen, but for how long?, does it get worse as I titrate up?

Any suggestions on how to deal with it? I also have asthma, which as goten much better!!

Now that you mention it, I had my allergy shot last night, and I was wiped out afterwards. I never thought to make a connection. I guess the histamine response causes fatigue.

After getting your shot, try some Ginseng Ginger Ale.

Ginseng Ginger Ale? Where do you get that? At a groceries store or a health food store? Is it a pick me up? I thought ginseng was for memory.
Thank you for the help.

Ginseng just gives you a little energey boost (along with the sugar). You can get it at Whole Foods, Wild Oats, or Dominicks. I just try to stay away from caffeine.
