Another form of allergy immunotherapy therapy is called sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) allergy tablets. Rather than shots, allergy tablets involve administering the allergens under the tongue generally on a daily basis. Two are directed at different kinds of grass pollen and one is for short ragweed. The two grass pollen allergy tablets are Oralair® (Stallergenes), which has five kinds of northern grass pollen, and Grastek® (Merck), which has timothy grass pollen. The short ragweed allergy tablet is called Ragwitek® (Merck). These allergy tablets provide an additional option for the treatment of allergic rhinitis/rhinoconjunctivitis triggered by ragweed or timothy/northern grasses.
