Re: Allergy shots

Only your allergist can tell you what is in them specifically as they are custom mixed and they come from various labs. We have no way to knwo where they come from. However, I've been on them 3 times for 5 years each time (teens,30's, 50's) and at almost 67 I have had no problems. There are no substances which you have to sign off on though so I know thimerasol is not contained in them.

Re: Allergy shots

i have had shots now for many yrs since i was maybe 17 ? and i am now 38, still no problems at all. i have gone off for a few yrs here and there but still am rec/ them. when i have the energy to i will get built up to my full dose again. have had other health issues not related and so dont feel well very often. plus where i go to its a far drive away. but yes they are safe. keep getting them and dont stop. they help very much so !
