I've been on allergy shots (immunotherapy) for about 2 years. I'm in the process of weening down for the next year, but I may be moving to a completely different region of the country (which will have different environmental allergens).

Does anyone know from experience if my 'new' doctor will have to create a new vial recipee and start me completely over at a lower concentration....in turn setting me back two years on my shots?

When I moved from warm humid LA/Miss to dry cool UT, I had no problems at all for about 5 yrs, then slowly I started getting new allergies. If you are mainly allergic to pollens, and the vegetation is completely different, you may well be OK. But best to ask your doctor now.

No, you shouldn't have to start from scratch. See if your current allergist can recommend an allergist in the region you are moving to.

Or you can check here:

AAAAI - Patients & Consumers Center

Under patients and consumers you will find "Find an Allergist"

Have your records transferred and you should be able to pick up where you left off.

I am speaking from experience as I have done this myself and had no problems and no interruptions in the schedule I was already following
