Probably: Although allergy shot has a success rate of >80%, a good portion of the patients need still need to take medication. Increasing the dose pre- but not during the season may help. A few patients may need a reduction in allergen dose during the peak pollen season. Have you asked your doctor to give you a nasal steroid-antihistamine combination ? Oral steroid not indicated. See b/c allergist.
