So I’m going once a week now. I’ll go for three more weeks and then I’ll begin going every other week. Everything seems to be going well but I’m now at 0.35 concentrate (highest concentrate is 0.5) and the dose is really starting to sting during and shortly after the injection. I don’t know how to describe it other than, damn that stings.
No regrets as I like how the frequency continues to drop off (I was going 3x per week, now I’m going once a week and eventually I’ll be going once a month). Still aiming for next Summer to be able to possibly get off the Allegra that I now take every night. 10 months ago
I’ve had a few worse than usual reactions while ramping up to maintenance. They told me this is normal and they weren’t that bad, I just feel like a crackhead when I’m scratching at the back of my upper arms all day. Otherwise, I have 8 more visits until I reach base and can start going once a week. So far so good and still excited about this. 13 months ago
I’m in my second week of receiving allergy shots (Immunology). I get 2 shots every time I go with increasing doses until I reach base or maintenance. That will take 30 visits to reach. Right now I’m going 2-3 times per week.
Once I hit base then I’ll go once a week for a while, then twice a month, then monthly. As for how long it will take to see results, they said to wait at least 1 year of base. So if I can hit by May then by May 2013 I should be noticing results.
This is definitely a long and patient process but one that I think will be VERY worth it. I wan’t to pack light when I travel afterall. 15 months ago
