With the help of the allergy medicine allergy therapy (AT) pill, a medication for chronic and refractory allergies, the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology is asking doctors to take a look at the possibility of using AT to help patients with allergies.
“The first thing that we have to look at is whether or not there’s a real benefit to using AT, and then we have a chance to evaluate the efficacy of AT on that particular condition,” said Dr. James F. Siegel, the chair of the ACAA’s committee on AT.
He added that AT is the most studied of the allergies medication classes, with studies showing it can help treat or treat at least some of the symptoms associated with asthma, allergic rhinitis, hay fever and other allergies.
Dr. Skelton, the lead author of the report, said AT is an important tool for treating chronic and persistent allergies and for managing asthma symptoms.
It has been shown to be a safe and effective alternative to medication, and has proven to be very effective at reducing asthma symptoms, Siegel said.
However, it is important to understand the potential side effects of using the pill.
“Some people are allergic to the drug itself, or their medication, or to the ingredients that are in the pill,” he said.
“If someone’s allergic to a particular ingredient, or the ingredients in the pills, they’re not necessarily going to get an allergy.
They may be allergic to other ingredients that you use, but you’re not going to be allergic.”
For patients who have had allergies before, they will probably need to continue using their medication until they develop an allergy again.
However, the pill has been proven to reduce the number of symptoms.
“For the most part, the effects on asthma have been very well-documented, and this has been a very successful drug,” Siegel added.
The study is based on an ongoing trial of AT, a pill containing an immune-boosting compound that was approved in 2016 and has been approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration.
The study also looked at the effects of AT in patients with asthma who were previously on antihistamines.
Siegel said he and his colleagues are not recommending people switch to AT, but it could be beneficial for those who do need a medication to manage their asthma.
“There is some research suggesting that if you’re taking antihistamine medication, you might need an AT,” he added.
“I don’t think there is anything wrong with using it, but if you want to go to a doctor for more serious allergies, you have to make a choice between using antihistamines and an AT.”
It’s something that needs to be explored in a way that’s as safe as possible, and it needs to make sure that there are no side effects.
