Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is an alternative way to treat allergies without injections. Currently, the only forms of SLIT approved by the FDA are tablets for ragweed, northern pasture grasses like timothy and dust mites. Tablets used under the tongue boost tolerance to the substance you’re allergic to and reduce symptoms. Allergy drops are not FDA-approved and are off-label in the United States. They are not covered by most insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. An allergist can evaluate your symptoms and provide you with the best treatment options.
