For the most part, SLIT risks relate to the nature of the treatment: It is administered at home and without direct medical supervision. Patients should therefore receive clear guidance from allergists on managing adverse reactions and treatment interruptions and should know when to consult the prescribing allergist.

Learn more about this therapy and get relief by consulting with an allergist.
