Allergies/Allergy Shots 2nd Vial

I have been taking allergy shots since July 2,2012.
I am now on my 4th shot of my 2nd vial.
I am having some allergy symptoms (stuffy
Head, stuffy ears, light headed) especially
right before I'm due for my next shot.
I was told by the allergy nurse last week
that I will reach maintenance at the end
of this 2nd vial?? I thought reaching
maintenance took a lot longer? Has anyone
heard of reaching maintenance so soon?

Re: Allergies/Allergy Shots 2nd Vial

Unless they have you on some type of stepped up schedule, I have never heard of reaching maintenance quite so quickly. I think I went thru 5 vials before maintenance. I started out with 6 shots/vial, but then due to reactions, was slowed down to a more gradual increase with 11 shots/vial. Your symptoms are probably due to your normal allergies, it would be rare for the shots to be effective against your allergies in 2 months time. Mine took 12-18 months before the various allergens began to affect me less. Are you getting shots weekly?

Yes, one shot weekly for mold, trees, ragweed, dust, cat dander, weeds, etc.

10 shots per vial and I am only on my
4th shot of 2nd Vial. There has to be some
mistake.

If you are just on one shot a week, you should be no where near maintenance. I did twice a week and it took 6 months to get me there.
