The RUSH protocol calls for several immunizations in a 3-4 hour window. So far.... so good. No significant increase in symptoms during these multiple exposures to grass pollens!
Well, I lived through the RUSH-SLIT protocol, using grass allergen, with few side effects or problems. In fact it went fairly good. The first treatment, under my tongue, resulted in the worst of the side effects, causing increased dizziness, labored breathing, some sweating, and increased heart palpitations. The second treatment had milder side effects, and the last few treatments resulted in NO side effects.
At this point, I have gained no noticeable benefits from the treatment. Only time and perseverance will tell.
One of my worst allergies is to Leather. I am now going to walk out into my Florida Room, to where I have my nice, big, soft-leather Swivel Rocker-Recliner and rub a QTip against the Leather and then insert it under my tongue. I purchases the recliner over three years ago and intended to age it for several years, until it outgassed enough for me to be able to use it. Well..... guess what!? I can sit in it for about 10 minutes before my breathing problems, and heart rate problems, and general malaise get bad enough for me to get off of it! Bummer, huh!
Depending upon the severity of any reaction that I might get, I intend to do several treatments, under my tongue, today and see what happens.
