when I went and got my allergy shot Wednesday I had bad reaction after like 5 hours.

I started to swell turned red and I felt like I'd been injected by two needles a little above my elbow.

I get two injections in one are one in the other.

I called my allergist office today and they called into my pharmacy predisone for me.

That's frustrating. One of the reasons I gave up allergy shots. Besides that I was sick every other week in the winter and they cant do them when you are not 100%, i frequnetly have reactions.

Instead, I just live with my allergies. Wink Anyways, the worst [life threatening] of my allergies are not things which the shots can help for.

Hope you feel better and get off pred soon.

allergy shots really help me.I'm not controlled very well.

Every winter I have bronchitas.

I'm just about allergic to the state of Georgia and a lot more.

Ok- I am glad that you have more patience than me. I am also not controlled well but I dont think most of my symptoms are caused by allergies in any event. IT could be I didn't even give the shots a fair trial but it wasn't working out with my life at the time so we stopped them.

When I went got my shot yesterday I had another reaction.

This one started hour after the shot and I swelled up again didn't get red.It was like this when I went to bed got my shot at 9:00am

I was ok when I woke up and the office called me today ask me about my reaction other day told them what happened yesterday and my allergist doesn't want me to come back for two weeks.

She'll defintely be doing something to the formula.

Sorry about ur troubles.. Wont coming for 2 weeks just make you more sensitve? That is what I was always told with shots.? Not to come if you r sick but otherwise consistnecy is important to building up the strenght of the shots.

I would think that they need to lessen the strength of the formula a month or so back. Do you have appt's with the dr or just see the nurse? I would make sure to be very firm with them and make sure they know what they are doing and are taking proper precautions with your history.

Happy Holidays.

It's the nurses that give me the shots.

It's my doctor that decided to wait 2 weeks.

I didn't just start getting the shot.

I'd been getting twice a week and it was cut back to once it's been like a year or more since I started getting allergy shots.

The reactions started when it was cut this will make 3rd time.

When it's cut back again.

I had another reaction to another allergy shot.

My allergist decided not to cut back on it unless there was another reaction and yesterday I had one.By the time I got home I was starting to swell. I itched like crazy.
