How Long Does It Take Before Allergy Drops Work?


Are allergy drops more effective than antihistamines?

Antihistamines are only effective at managing symptoms temporarily. They block the short-term production of histamine, providing relief for the day or for several hours, depending on the dosage. Allergy drops actually treat symptoms at their source, often providing lifelong relief.
