Post Allergy Shots For Dust and Dust Mites (Pls Read)

Hey there,

I have been plagued by an allergy to dust and dust mites for 20+ years and I began shots next week. (a potion of dust, dust mites, dog and cat)

I know that it takes a while to build up but will I all of a sudden wake up and feel better or is it a little bit at time as I continue to get the shots?

My schedule is as follows:

2 shots per week for 6 weeks, then
1 shot per week for 6 weeks, then
1 shot every other week for 6 weeks , then
monthly thereafter and so on.

I am lucky because my insurance pays 100% for the shots.

Thank you,
Aarondawg

Generally you'll wake up one day and realize you're a bit better. And then you'll realize later that you are a good bit better. And so on. It can take a year or more to notice a lot of difference.

Thank you, that will make the shots worth it.

Take care,
