Allergy shots stopped working — now what?



January 10, 2019 - 10:16 AM

Dear Dr. Roach: I’ve had allergies my entire life. I started taking allergy shots, and all my symptoms disappeared. I had years of symptom-free springs and falls. Then, a few years ago, the itchy, watery eyes returned, along with other symptoms.

I have to take Flonase and an allergy pill on top of my allergy shots to get relief. I’m told this is due to there being much more pollen in the atmosphere. Is that plausible? Also, what is the best allergy pill? — J.J.C.
