There are several types of medications available, both over-the-counter and prescription, to help ease and treat allergy symptoms. These allergy drugs include antihistamines, decongestants, combination drugs, corticosteroids, and others.
XOLAIR® is a popular injectable allergic asthma drug. The antibody helps decrease allergic responses in the body and is used to treat moderate to severe asthma that is caused by allergies in adults and children who are at least 12-year-old. It is not a rescue medicine for treating an asthma attack. Additionally, prescription XOLAIR has been shown to significantly reduce the itch of hives as well as a number of hives for chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) patients uncontrolled on H1 antihistamine treatment.
Your allergy prescriptions treatment plan may include medications, immunotherapy, changes to your work or home environment, or dietary changes. Ask your allergist to explain anything about your diagnosis or treatment that you don’t understand. With test results that identify your allergens and a treatment plan to help you take control, you’ll be able to reduce or eliminate allergy signs and symptoms.
