The FDA has just approved a new kind of therapy for people with allergies to grass and ragweed pollen. Grass and ragweed pollen-allergic patients usually have sneezing, watery eyes, cough, nasal congestion, throat itch and maybe wheezing from early May through August(grass) and August 15-December (ragweed) in the Philadelphia area. Of course you all are familiar with drug therapy (such as antihistamines and nasal sprays) and you may have heard of allergy shots. This new treatment, ORALAIR and GRASSTEK (for grass pollen) and RAGWITEK (for ragweed), is similar to allergy shots, but instead of an injection, a dis-solvable tablet is placed under the tongue. It’s a very “natural” kind of treatment and can be done at home. Check out the following press announcement.
