Re: Anaphylaxis from allergy shots.
You get your immunotherapy shots and Xolair shot on the save visit?
I always skip my immunotherapy shots on the weeks I have my Xolair shots.
I've only needed an epi-shot once before. I was fine by the next day.
My allergist requires me to carry my epi-pen with me for all shots. When I started my shots, I had to show that I had the pen with me. They wanted to make sure I have it in case of a delayed reaction when I leave.
I know with the Xolair shots, I have to wait 25 minutes after the shots before I leave. I'm far enough in my treatments with no current issues that I no longer have to wait around anymore after my allergy shots.
Incidents like this can be very scary. I hope you are much better now.
