It takes a long time for some folks to see benefit from allergy shots. Also, singulair doesn't work for me. That said, talk to your doctor about raising the dosage of your flovent and about the new drug for allergic asthma, Xolair.
Quote from reader1:Xolair does not require "astronomical" IgE scores. There are people with scores around 100 who have been approved. Mine was 785 at last take.
Approval to get Xolair does require a history of recurring allergic asthma that is poorly controlled by inhaled corticosteroids (flovent, advair), allergy shots and other traditional therapies. The price is astronomical - $10,000 - $20,000 is a conservative figure. It's more like $18,000 - $36,000 dependent on dosage, so you do need to have health insurance, public or private, and be approved.
