As new medications are approved for patients with allergies and asthma it becomes more important that doctors are able to provide them with the key information about these therapies and what it can mean for their overall care.
Conditions like asthma and seasonal allergies can start when a patient is very young and stay with them throughout the course of their lives. As a result careful monitoring and treatment can greatly help improve the quality of life for those patients.
For patients with seasonal allergies the prescription medications available may not be enough to help with their symptoms and shots may not be an option they want to consider. Newly developed sublingual immunotherapies have been developed to help these patients manage their daily lives.
