Our allergy drops just as effective as allergy shots. Yes. So there's never been a head-to-head study, but in 2013, a study in the journal of clinical immunology by Katherine Meads, compared all those studies that she could find on the two and found that there there's no clear evidence at one was superior over the other. In 2015, a study by Martin Pedagozow, again looked at all the studies and found that in general, the choice between allergy shots or allergy drops should be based on patient preference - because both have been shown to be highly effective at improving allergy symptoms for the longterm.
