There are three common types of allergy medications. Antihistamines can be taken in the form of tablets or nasal sprays and work by blocking histamines—a chemical produced by your immune system in response to a perceived threat, such as an allergen. Nasal steroid sprays are powerful anti-inflammatory medications that reduce swelling in the nasal passageway to alleviate pressure, congestion, and difficulty breathing through the nose. Leukotriene blockers work similarly but are non-steroidal. They can be taken in tablet form to neutralize your immune system’s production of leukotrienes—a chemical that causes inflammation, tightening of the airway muscles, and the production of mucus.
Allergy medications can be crucial when managing allergy symptoms, but it is important to have a thorough evaluation by an allergy expert to minimize risks and potential side effects. The Center for ENT is a full-service allergy treatment center with the resources and expertise to accurately diagnose your allergy symptoms and prescribe or recommend all over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription allergy medications. Additionally, we specialize in the latest allergy treatment options, such as immunotherapy (also known as allergy shots or allergy drops) and biologic therapies, which can be used with or without medication.
